Movie Info

Actor-turned-director Tim Reid follows up the success of his 1996 opus Once Upon a Time...When We Were Colored with this tense psychological thriller. The film opens with two upwardly mobile couples having a ball at a fairground. Chance (Blair Underwood) and his very pregnant wife Roberta happily board a Ferris wheel with their best friends Michael (Michael Beach) and his fashion designer wife Lauren (Debbi Morgan) when a freak accident strikes, and Roberta and the baby are killed. Michael and Lauren let Chance grieve at their luxurious abode. Soon Lauren reveals that she recently had a secret abortion because she did not know if the child was Michael's or Chance's. Grief-stricken and jealous, Chance starts stalking Lauren and doing everything in his power to wreck her marriage. This film was screened at the 1999 Chicago Film Festival.

True equality, sadly, lies in the democratization of all niche films into the same sort of pre-digested pabulum white males have been making for decades.

Audience Reviews for Asunder


I watched this on TV in error - I thought it was actually a different movie when I sat down to watch. Actually it was pretty good so I kept watching. Starts off with two married couples who are best friends at a fairground. There is an accident where one of the women fall out of a Ferris wheel and dies. Her husband pretty much loses it and becomes obsessed with the other woman, who has problems in her own marriage and unwisely has a fling with him. You know how the rest of it goes... I enjoyed it.
