Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 01/15/1999
"...Neil Jordan has directed it furiously, with a lush, insinuating visual style that gets right under the skin..."
USA Today - 01/15/1999
"...[Bening] is terrific....There are also solid performances from THE CRYING GAME's Stephen Rea and Aidan Quinn....[Jordan] is a talented filmmaker, and his hauntingly eerie approach seems fresh..."

Product Description:

This darkly imaginative film from director Neil Jordan (THE CRYING GAME, INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE) follows Claire, a psychic New England housewife (Annette Bening) who loses her grip on reality when her dreams connect with those of a psychotic child murderer (Robert Downey Jr.). Centered around a ghost town submerged in the local reservoir and a creepy apple orchard, Claire's disturbing visions baffle the police and eventually lead to her confinement in an insane asylum. As the killer's fantasies continue to haunt her, Claire realizes she must succumb to her link with his twisted psyche if she is to escape from the hospital, track him down, and put an end to the madness.

Jordan's direction captures his heroine's horrific nightmares and the autumnal New England locales brilliantly, while Bening attacks her role with ferocious gusto. The film's uniquely rich, color-saturated look comes courtesy of cinematographer Darius Khondji. Jordan wrote the screenplay with Bruce Robinson (WITHNAIL & I), adapted from the novel DOLL'S EYES by Bari Wood, and longtime Jordan collaborator Stephen Rea costars as Claire's doubtful psychiatrist.

Plot Synopsis:

Neil Jordan's IN DREAMS features a fairytale-influenced twist on the serial killer formula.
