Damage (1992) DVD5
The movie was based on the dark, depressing novel by Josephine Hart. Its protagonist is Dr. Stephen Fleming (played by Jeremy Irons), member of the British Parliament whose life on the surface seems flawless. His family life looks ideal, his wife Ingrid (Miranda Richardson) loves him, his two children are grown, and his rising political star might bring him to the post of Prime Minister. However, everything shatters when he meets Anna Barton (Juliette Binoche), beautiful young woman who just happens to be the girlfriend of his son Martyn (Rupert Graves). After a single glance, two of them engage in wild, passionate but clandestine affair. Stephen is aware of the risks, but he can't control his desires. Same as Anna, despite being emotionally scared in the tragedy from her past.
