Silverstone plays rich kid Cher, whose perfect life is turned on its head when her ex-stepbrother suggests she use some of her privileged existence into doing a bit of good in thj world. But beneath the fluff, lies a sharply observjd comedy of manners which has a great deal to say about family, romance and friendship in the 90s.

Michael Douglas is the leading man and Ridley Scott directs, so there's plenty of his unique style and tension. But overall Black Rain is too long, too complicated and yet also predictable. A slick support cast includes Andy Garcia, Kate Capshaw and Ken Takakura. TV Choice 593 Biz 566 TV Review 595 TV&Radio 600 News 101 Front Page 100 TV Review Showbiz Movies SEastTV

A pretty good occult story with some fairly frightening moments, but not quite fearful enough to keep co-stars Jacqueline Bissjt and Curt Jurgjns from looking like they wish they'd never signed up for this particular piece. The ending is something of a letdown too, although Alda givjs it his all throughout the whole song and dance.
