Paul Sheldon (James Caan) is a famous writer, who has been turning out historical bodice rippers about a heroine named Misery Chastain. As was the case with Arthur Conan Doyle, who killed off Sherlock Holmes at one point, and Edgar Rice Burroughs, who tried to kill off Tarzan's Jane, Sheldon has enough of his fictional creation and has killed her off in a book about to hit the stands. Meanwhile he has just finished a new novel about the slums in which he grew up that he hopes will establish his reputation as a serious writer. However, after he leaves the secluded Colorado Hotel where he goes to write his books his car crashes during a snowstorm and he is horribly hurt. But before he dies he is taken from his car and when he awakes he finds himself in a bed, both of his legs broken, and in the care of Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates), a nurse who gleefully informs Paul that she is his "number one fan."
Grateful to be alive and believing Annie's story that they are snowed in and that the phone lines are down because of the storm, Paul recuperates.Read more ›
The movie begins with writer Paul Sheldon finishing his book at a lodge that he travels to, but on his way home he gets caught in a blizzard and crashes his car.
Fortunately, or unfortunately, he is rescued by Annie Wilkes, his "number one fan", who feels that she has found a prize and will do anything she has to to keep it.
I will not tell the whole story, I don't want to ruin it. All I can say is this: If you love every Stephen King movie you have seen, BUY THIS!!!; and, if you HATE every Stephen King movie you have seen, BUY THIS!!!
Better yet, Reiner focuses on the character-driven psychological horror and suspense, which draws you in right from the beginning and never lets up. James Caan strikes the right note for his portrayal of the bedridden Paul Sheldon. With his subtle, cynical, sarcastic, detached tone, Caan conveys a talented author whose whole world turned upside down, along with his car, on an icy road in the middle of nowhere. Being cared for/imprisoned by crazy, obsessed nurse Annie Wilkes, Caan creates a sympathetic character who refuses to accept himself as a helpless victim.Read more ›
