Deceived

Directed by Damian Harris. Starring Goldie Hawn, John Heard, Ashley Peldon, Tom Irwin. (1991)

REVIEWED By Kathleen Maher, Fri., Oct. 4, 1991

Contrary to what the marketing campaign would have you believe, Hawn doesn't expose much in the way of range here. For emotions that cannot be expressed with a giggle, say fear, confusion, sadness, vulnerability, Hawn makes do by biting her lower lip. She's well matched by Heard who conveys nothing whatsoever. For a love story, the characters are insufferable and for a thriller, it is predictable.
