Plot
Director Sidney Lumet has remade the 1980 movie by his contemporary, John Cassavetes , casting Sharon Stone in the role of Gloria (portrayed in the original by Cassavetes' wife, Gena Rowlands ), a street-toughened woman sliding into middle age. When the neighbors are murdered by a group of mobsters, one of which is a former boyfriend, Gloria takes the couple's seven-year-old son ( Jean-Luke Figueroa ) on the run. In time, she learns why the boy's parents were killed, and maybe just a little about herself. Sidney Lumet , director of '70s classics Network and Dog Day Afternoon , focuses more on the relationship between Gloria and the boy than did the original. Coincidentally, this would make the film very similar to the Brazilian Central Station , released at virtually the same time. — Ron Wells
