Derailed (2005, USA) C-107m. SCOPE ** D: Mikael Hafström. Starring Clive Owen, Jennifer Aniston, Vincent Cassel, Giancarlo Esposito, Xzibit, RZA, Tom Conti. Thriller about family father Owen, who meets beautiful stranger Aniston on a train one day and hesitantly begins an affair. When they want to spend their first night together, they are interrupted by a mugger (Cassel), who rapes Aniston and starts to blackmail Owen. Watchable concoction from a novel by James Siegel. Far-fetched and mean-spirited occasionally, but not bad.
