Check it Out: Death and the Maiden

Directed by Roman Polanski, Death and the Maiden is set in a South American country where Paulina Escobar (Sigourney Weaver) was kidnapped and tortured by the government. The sadistic doctor who tortured her turns up at her house 15 years later, and Paulina wants to make him pay for his actions. But Paulina never saw her torturer – she only heard his voice – so how can she be positive she has the right man?
