Panic (2000)


What happens when you’re unhappy with your life? Some struggle through it and find a solution. Others change parts of it—job, spouse, city, etc.—to find relief from that which is causing the problems. Some see a shrink to find out whether it is them or something in their life. For Alex (William H. Macy), it isn’t quite so straightforward. He’s working in the family business with his dad Michael (Donald Sutherland). His mom, Dierdre (Barbara Bain) helped start the business and it’s all Alex has known since he was a wee sprout. No wonder he is seeing a psychiatrist. You see being employed as a killer-for-hire can be stressful. But he thinks he may have found a release after meeting Sarah Cassidy (Neve Campbell) in the doctor’s waiting room. She’s cute, perky, available and as interested in him as he is in her. This could be better for a mid-life crisis than that little red sports car.
