The Hand That Rocks the Cradle
1992
***
Director: Curtis Hanson
Cast: Rebecca De Mornay, Annabella Sciorra, Matt McCoy, Julianne Moore

A traumatised widow loses her baby as well and plots revenge. She seeks employment as a nanny for a mother whose life she wants to destroy. This slick, trashy and entertaining thriller starts well, but its climax is predictably over the top. The film turned Rebecca De Mornay into a star for five minutes.
