Overview

The Crush is a psychological thriller wherein a young man is the object of the obsession of a mentally unbalanced young girl. Journalist Nick Elliot Cary Elwes rents the guest house of a wealthy couple. The family's 14-year-old daughter Darien Alicia Silverstone flirts with him, and when her advances are not reciprocated she becomes increasingly obsessed with him resorting at last to violence and murder. Alicia Silverstone is beautiful and surprisingly good as the obsessed girl. Cary Elwes is also good in conveying his attraction and restraint in his dealings with so young and troubled a girl. However, the premise of the man being trapped by the aggressive, vengeful female is somewhat outdated and cliched. The Crush which should concentrate on the motivations of the girl, instead focuses on her increasingly violent acts, which include the vandalism of Nick's car and the attempted murder of his girlfriend. None of the characters are very real, and the plot is contrived, depending on illogical coincidence and implausible behavior by the principal characters. The Crush, an exploitive, cliched melodrama masquerading as a thriller, fails to either surprise or thrill.

    A reviewer

    Alicia silverstone makes her screen acting debute in the crush also starring cary elwes who some may or may not remember from 1987's the princess bride also 1993's robin hood men in tights.Alicia silverstone plays 14 year old adrian.She's like every other 14 year old she likes horses and playing the piano and hurting and killing people.Cary Elwes plays nick who befriends the 14 year old after moving into her parents guest house.This is not a love story.I wont spoil the movie for you but its alicia silverstone at her best.Buy this movie its worth every penny!!!.

    Synopsis of the highly appreciated thriller of the 90's

    The Crush is a riveting suspense thriller, that will leave you paralyzed with tension. It centers around Nick, a newspaper writer, who finds a place to live among rich couple, Cliff and Liv Forrester, and their seductive fourteen year old daughter, Adrienne. As Nick settles in, he finds that Adrienne has become emotionally attatched to him, and has developed a crush. After trying to reject her repeatedly, he starts to dig a deeper hole, dragging his new girlfriend, Amy with him. But Adrienne won't take no for an answer, and starts to ruin Nick's life, piece by piece, proving that if she can't have him, no one can.

    This is a very important movie every parent and metaphysical counselor should sit down with their family members with special needs should watch and then have a discussion and therapy session about.

    I watched this movie and I can feel the connection with myself and Alicia Silverstone's character (Darian Forrester).I recognized everyone the warning signs.Darian's mother should have intervened when Nick Elliot was trying to tell her that Darian needed counseling right away.As a writer and someone who has a lot of experience with bipolar.In all of my research on mental illness and in my other studies in metaphysics such as yoga and reiki and as a reiki practioner.My sixth sense and my reading Darian's mind.Darian has bipolar.When the truth was revealed.Fortunately Darian got help for her mental illness.Only thing I would say is don't bring a person with bipolar disorder down to the floor.It's a dangerous move and it can get you into trouble with the law and you can be served with a personal protection order.I would like to say thank you to Alicia Silverstone for inspiring me to start taking up yoga and reiki.
