Moody drama in which a contemporary photojournalist (Catherine McCormack) investigating a brutal 1873 double murder begins to suspect a sexual relationship between her poet husband (Sean Penn) and a seductive fan (Elizabeth Hurley) as they share a weekend boat near the century-old murder site. Kathryn Bigelow directs a murky tale of troubled romantic and familial relationships which constantly crosscuts from the present to the dark doings in the 19th-century bludgeoning but fails to gather emotional momentum. Recurring shadowy violence, a discreet sexual encounter and other sexual situations, brief nudity, minor profanity and an instance of rough language. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
