A 2011 thriller about a husband and wife held for ransom during a home-invasion robbery. Kyle Miller (Creator/NicolasCage) is a fast-talking diamond dealer, married Sarah, a bored housewife (Creator/NicoleKidman). Creator/JoelSchumacher directed, in what would prove to be his final feature film before his death.

After premiering at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, it enjoyed a limited theatrical release the next month, followed by the DVD and Blu-ray release a few weeks later--almost, but not quite, DirectToVideo.
