Overview

A clandestine love affair may claim a terrible price from two desperate people in this psychological thriller. Charles Schine (Clive Owen) is an advertising executive who is married to Deanna (Melissa George) and has a young diabetic daughter whose third kidney operation has just failed. Charles' life turns a most unexpected corner when he meets Lucinda Harris (Jennifer Aniston) on a commuter train. Lucinda, who is also married with a daughter, keeps bumping into Charles on the train, and they strike up a friendship that soon grows into something deeper. Eventually Charles and Lucinda meet for lunch, then dinner, then check into a posh hotel, but the consequences turn out to be greater than they imagined; the dangerous criminal Philippe LaRoche (Vincent Cassel) breaks into the couple's hotel room, beats Charles nearly unconscious, and rapes Lucinda. The problem doesn't end there, however; LaRoche soon unveils both his certainty that the couple avoided calling the police, and -- more troublingly -- his possession of Charles' personal information. When he makes the ill-advised attempt to blackmail the couple, Charles turns to a rough-cut friend from his workplace, who offers to help out -- for a small commission.Derailed was the first American project for Swedish filmmaker Mikael Håfström.

This movie is extremely graphic in its depiction of physical and sexual violence. It is also ridicuoulsly predictable, relies on sappy heart string ploys, and ends far too conveniently. This movie is sloppy, far too drawn out, and miserable to watch.

MY FRIEND AND I JUST SAW THIS MOVIE LAST NIGHT AND I WOULD GIVE IT 6 STARS IF I COULD!! IT WAS ABSOLUTELY CAPTIVATING. I LOVED THE SUSPENSE, CAST AND ALL. IT'S A GREAT MOVIE.

The book took you in an entirely different direction in this neatl packaged attempt at a thriller. I don't want to spoil the ending, but the movie is entirely different. The author took the lead role in a totally different character arc that was much more rewarding. Read the book.

Ignore what the movie critics say! This movie is truely a masterpiece! Vincent Cassel is excellent and extremely cruel in this film. Clive Owen is cunning and smart and Jennifer Aniston as always is breathtaking and here she is tragic. I cannot believe how addicted I became to this film after I first saw it. I still can't get it out of my mind. I watch it quite often - more than "Closer" even! This was my first Clive Owen and Vincent Cassel film and let me tell you I was left in awe of them. I was skeptical at first because of Jennifer Aniston's "The Good Girl". But she was great here. The first hotel scene is graphic and harsh but the actors do it so well. It has a wild yin-yang affect on the viewer. Well done! :)
