Deep Water

March 16, 2022

This erotic thriller is the kind of flick that will make you ache for the days when you could hang out in the theater lobby afterwards and talk it out. Because while this one may or may not run deep, it’s fun enough to want to hash out, even if the fun in watching just skims the surface.
