EYE OF THE BEHOLDER

Sent on assignment to shadow Joanna Patrick (Judd), a woman believed to be blackmailing the son of an American senator, the Eye is drawn deeper and deeper into Joanna's psychological life, leading him to follow her across continents, risking his own life to save a woman who may be a serial killer.
ISN'T SHE GREAT

Jacqueline Susann (Midler) is a hack romance writer who reinvents herself as a best-selling novelist in this fictionalized account of Susann's life.
