net cafe scandals – No Safe
Driven by the violent nightmare of his childhood, fueled by forces that few could understand, and burdened by secrets no one must know, Kilcannon is running for President–and entering the crucial battleground of California with seven days to go. But for Kilcannon, there are hurdles that his courage, charisma, and compassion may not overcome: the network correspondent he still loves; the reporter bent on their exposure; the rival who’ll do anything to win; and the fanatic who believes that he must murder Kilcannon to protect the right to life.
The confident narration of actress Patricia Kalember lends an appropriate polish to this political thriller built around a beleaguered senator’s presidential run. “There’s still a lot to do,” the candidate declares. “And together we will do it.” Well, maybe, if he can unburden himself of some hefty personal baggage, outlast a tenacious reporter who smells blood, and dodge a would-be assassin who’s milling in the crowds.
Kalember switches gracefully between narrative and dialogue as this five-hour abridged version reveals some all-too-familiar political maneuverings that ratchet ever higher, along with the rising sense of danger. (Running time: five hours, four cassettes) –George Laney
