Save Me (1993)
Three stalwarts of made-for-TV productions -- Harry Hamlin, Michael Ironside, and Steve Railsback -- team up for this erotic thriller. Hamlin plays a mild-mannered accountant who takes up with an intriguing stranger (Lysette Anthony), who happens to harbor multiple personalities: seductress, prude, and saint.

Critic Reviews for Save Me
Allen brings such conviction to the part that it's almost possible to look past the gaps in Mark's development. In the end, you may not buy each step he takes, but you respect Allen's attempt to make the effort seem genuine.
The first release from the gay-oriented Mythgarden production company, Save Me still bodes well for its evenhanded approach.
This earnest, well-acted melodrama has compassion for all of its characters, who include gay men and the Christians dedicated to healing them of their 'brokenness'.
Save Me doesn't poke fun at anyone's beliefs. It takes a more nuanced humanistic approach.
This is a modest, thoughtful, independent production of exceptional insight and quietly devastating power.
Interesting, provocative film about one of the most polarizing issues in our culture.
tough, tight, and thought-provoking, a small-scale indie success for everyone involved.
As a movie, it doesn't amount to much more than an after school-special with sex and profanity.
A be-true-to-yourself message prevails, one that can be safely stretched to it's-OK-to-be-gay. But the film never definitely takes the stand that homosexuals can't be 'converted.'
While Save Me does seem like a TV movie, it is refreshingly honest and heartfelt.
Here after a long dry spell is an example of queer filmmaking at its best. Hallelujah my gay brethren!
A film that stands the best chance of winning the hearts and minds of those who now embrace the gay 'recovery' movement.
The film refuses to follow any one strand of political logic, and as such exists on an insufficient amount of thematic oxygen to support its loaded dramatic context.
An emotionally powerful drama with the potential to build bridges of understanding between gays and the Religious Right.
Where other films would have demonized Christians outright, Save Me presents a world where gays and Christians can go their separate ways while wishing each other well.
Audience Reviews for Save Me
Excellent work by the cast and an even handed approach makes this an enjoyable film. Everyone was shown to have flaws, some more severe than others but all were recognizable people with good intentions.More
A bit melodramatic, but I am glad this is a more mature version of But I'm a cheerleader. I love itMore
The only real surprise of this movie is its tenderness. Once the story is laid out, you know what's going to happen. However it has solid characters and good acting. I wasn't bored.More
