What a load of dated, dull, bland TV-movie stylistics we have to wade through to get to it (director Chopra must have had the most conflicted instincts, and/or been meddled with by producers), but the final third of this film is quite a bold and curious psychosexual something, not least for the performances, esp. Dern's (of course).
