Overview

In this psychological thriller, a needy young woman finds fulfillment by trying to literally become her successful roommate. Attractive Manhattanite Allison Jones Bridget Fonda has it all: a handsome beau, a rent-controlled apartment, and a promising career as a fashion designer. When boyfriend Sam Steven Weber proves unfaithful, Allison strikes out on her own but must use the classifieds to seek out a roommate in order to keep her spacious digs. In steps Hedra Carlson Jennifer Jason Leigh, who's timid and frumpy but puppy-dog sweet. The self-centered Allison finds Hedra's eager friendship flattering, but soon she grows annoyed as Hedra begins emulating everything about her. After Allison gets back with Sam and asks Hedra to please vacate the premises, the pert beauty really gets to see her weird new roomie's bad side -- Hedra, it seems, is downright homicidal. Directed by Barbet Schroeder, who wowed Hollywood with Barfly and Reversal of Fortune. Single White Female was the second screenplay from future Opposite of Sex director Don Roos.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Although it's not as distinctive as the movies that earned Barbet Schroeder his stellar American reputation, Single White Female is the most entertaining of the straight genre pieces the director filmed in the 1990s. With a wickedly literal twist on the familiar roommate-from-hell scenario, Don Roos' screenplay exploits suspense film conventions, but the gender of the players and the Alfred Hitchcock-style doubling of the plot add a welcome dose of psychological subtext to a genre that had of late become rather straightforward in Hollywood's hands. With her malleable looks and easily projected neediness, Jennifer Jason Leigh is downright creepy as Hedra, a role that gave the idiosyncratic actress cineplex exposure while still allowing her to expand her range. As Allison, Bridget Fonda isn't afraid to coast on the charm of her famous face and portray a character whose very substance is her facile nature and knack for coming out on top. The supporting characters, from Allison's boyfriend to the obligatory gay best friend, are fairly standard-issue, but this is a two-person psychodrama, not an ensemble picture. Bob Rafelson's Black Widow explored similar subject matter with a more brazenly lesbian undertone, but for a mainstream thriller, Single White Female is pretty darn edgy even while it remains solidly entertaining.

    The crazy friends we keep...

    This book sticks to the movie and was a great read. If you liked the movie I think you'll enjoy the book even more because it goes into greater detail. Another book I came across, inspired from this title, is Single Latina Female by D. L. Blanco. The story isn't the same but the principal is. They are both aboout a jealous and possessive friend that the other friend underestimates. I recommend both of these books.<BR/><BR/>Single White Female & Single Latina Female
