The Eavesdropper Movie Review
Naturally there's a conspiracy here and a woman in jeopardy, and before the end our heroine will turn the tables on everyone, right? Yeah, and that's fine. Jenner is a solid actress -- reminiscent of another Trekker, Michelle Forbes -- and she does all that can be expected with a rather rote script. Supporting cast is on target, but the whole effect is rather muted. Too much time is spent meandering on tangents that never really pay off or, worse, that we just don't care about. The entire film is bookended with unnecessary backstory and future-story about the woman's life. It comes across a bit too much like padding.
The audio effect of the "overheard thoughts" is quite effective. I caught myself trying to control them from time to time during my viewing of this DVD -- lest the wife secretly have the power to hear them as well. Overall: Creepy, and a good first effort from Bakalar.
