L. C. ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUTE 16: 1969 YELLOWJACKETS YEARBOOK: FAVES-HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE

MY FAVORITE MOVIE NO. 16 IS "THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE" STARRING "ERNIE HUDSON", "ANNABELLA SCIORRA",
"REBECCA DE MORNAY", AND "MATT McCOY"!!


The Hand That Rocks the Cradle is a 1992 American psychological thriller film directed by Curtis Hanson, and starring Annabella Sciorra and Rebecca De Mornay. The tale follows a vengeful, psychopathic[1] nanny out to destroy a naive woman and steal her family. Claire Bartel is happily married and pregnant with her second child. At a routine check-up, she is sexually molested by her new obstetrician, Dr. Victor Mott. Traumatized, she tells her husband Michael, who encourages her to report him to the state medical board. Her initial accusation prompts four more women to come forward with similar accusations, and multiple charges are prepared against Dr. Mott by the district attorney's office. Guilty, Dr. Mott shoots and kills himself. Later, Dr. Mott's pregnant widow is told by her lawyers that her husband's assets have been frozen because of the lawsuits and that she will lose her luxurious home. Mrs. Mott goes into early labor after fainting from the stressful news her lawyer gives her, causing her to lose her baby and, after hemorrhaging, is given an emergency hysterectomy. While recovering in the hospital, she sees a news story featuring Claire as the woman who went to the state medical board, leading Mrs. Mott to swear vengeance.

PLEASE CONTINUE STROLLING DOWN MEMORY LANE....
