Swimfan (Movies)

"If there's anyone you should be concerned about, it's that guy Brant. Mr. Rose's assistant? He's, like, in love with Mr. Rose, like Swimfan love."

This 2002 thriller is about a high school boy whose one-night stand in a swimming pool becomes a tale of an obsessive woman scorned. Hallie doesn't say whether or not Budd Rose and his assistant, Brant, had a one-night stand, but it hardly seems to matter. Brant's love for Mr. Rose seems more a product of his own fantasies than anything else. How appropriate that a culturally-challenged Generation Y teenager like Hallie would reference this movie rather than more famous and well-done stalker movies like Fatal Attraction and Misery. She's probably never heard of them.
