An action-packed thriller starring Meryl Streep as a former river guide.

She’s looking forward to a refreshing rafting holiday with her husband (David Strathairn) and their young son (Joseph Mazzello). But meeting psychotic thief Kevin Bacon at the water’s edge changes all that…

Streep makes a tough, resourceful heroine and Bacon puts a smooth, smiling spin on his villain (‘I am a nice guy, just a different kind of nice guy’), which sparks well against Strathairn’s uptight character.

This nail-biting thriller starts off calmly but then tumbles into a torrent of tension and the storm-tossed stuntwork is real white-knuckle stuff.
