International stars JoBeth Williams (Poltergeist), Tom Conti (Miracles) and Giancarlo Giannini (Seven Beauties) co-star in this clever and brisk paced cloak-and-dagger comedy adventure. Cathy Palmer (Williams) is a neglected housewife whose only excitement in life comes from reading sizzling romantic thrillers by the renowned Rebecca Ryan. Cathy enters a writing contest, winning a trip to Paris… upon arriving in the city of lights; she’s hurt in an accident and is knocked out cold. Once awake, she starts believing she’s the renowned author Rebecca Ryan, and begins living all the glamour, suspense and romance of her favorite author. Rick Rosenthal (Bad Boys) directed this whimsical action-comedy for the romantic dreamers in all of us.
