A postmodern thriller about loss, love, power and the distance that modern technology puts between us. The story of four people—an actor/gigolo, a frustrated chambermaid, an obsessed writer and the film producer who manipulates them all—is filmed as if we were watching their power games through the lens of a surveillance camera. Disquieting and enthralling, it confirmed Egoyan’s status as one of the most talented directors of his generation. SPEAKING PARTS is also available on DVD as part of the ESSENTIAL EGOYAN box set.
