Death and the Maiden

Sigourney Weaver plays a woman who has been subjected to torture and rape under a previous government regime. One day, by chance, her husband (Stuart Wilson) brings home a man she is sure was her torturer – even though she was blindfolded and only ever heard his voice. Faced with her husband’s incredulity she takes the situation into her own hands and holds the man hostage, demanding his confession. Ben Kingsley plays the mild-mannered doctor who may or may not have been guilty of these terrible crimes.
