Mysterious and attractive heiress Abigail Clayton has not left her luxurious mid-town Manhattan loft apartment for almost two decades. The famous daughter of a wealthy industrialist, Abigail disappeared from the prying eyes of the press and the intrusiveness of her family on her 18th birthday, the day she received her massive inheritance. During years of self-imposed isolation, Abigail has had contact with only two people: her building's Concierge, Klandermann (Kevin Pollak), with whom she communicates via notes -- and Dr. Raymond Fontaine (Beau Bridges), a long-time family friend and her sole confidant for most of her life. When the death of her elderly neighbour prompts NYPD Homicide Detective Frank Giardello (Giovanni Ribisi) to launch an investigation, the agoraphobic Abigail is distressed to find him outside her door, asking to question her. Having tried to acquire the dead woman's now vacant apartment to ensure her privacy, Abigail is further upset when her requests go unanswered and new tenants, wealthy Lillian (Amy Smart) and Charlie (Jason Lee) move in. Abigail anxiously monitors her combative new neighbours from the safety of her front door's peephole, but her well-ordered world begins to unravel when she finally encounters Lillian and Charlie face-to-face-and her sheltered existence becomes threatened in unexpected and terrifying ways.

Columbus Circle is set in a small exclusive area of town of that name, where wealthy residents live in exclusive apartments tended to by a concierge. In one such apartment lives a wealthy lady, Abigail, who is the heiress to a vast family fortune. A recluse, she communicates only via messages posted under the door to the concierge, who organises her shopping for her. She also has one older male friend who is the only visitor she allows, who helps organise much of her administration and also acts as a confidante.

When the elderly lady in the opposite apartment passes on, Abigail is nervous of newcomers to her floor and tries to buy the apartment. She is however inexplicably gazumped by a rich couple who shortly move in; and begins to stress when they turn out to be far from ideal neighbours.

Her stress is exacerbated when a detective comes calling, explaining that the death of the lady next-door is now a murder inquiry - and so she is forced to let someone into her apartment for the first time in years - and as the situation gets worse with the neighbours next door she finds her her apartment admitting more people.

The best thing about Columbus Circle is the gradual revelation that every character in the film has either another agenda, or for one reason or another, aren't quite who they said they were. For the viewer, this gradually makes Abigail seem more and more isolated and vulnerable, yet all the while she is gradually opening up to people.

The film's quite a slick Hollywood affair, yet manages to remain fairly tense and claustrophobic by setting most of the scenes in the apartment block.

Format: DVD
Columbus Circle is the name of an exclusive building on the circle itself, the centre-point of New York (as all distances to & from New York are measured from this spot). Long-time reclusive heiress Abigail (Selma Blair - Hellboy) lives in the penthouse with only an elderly lady for a neighbour, she hasn't left the building for the best part of 20 years. She likes the way things are and is worried by change; so when her neighbour dies in suspicious circumstances, the police (Giovanni Ribisi - Boiler Room) are called to the circle and bring change to the building. When new neighbours Lillian & Charlie (Amy Smart - Crank & Jason Lee - My Name Is Earl) move in, they bring noise & domestic disputes and Lillian uses Abigail as shelter from domestic abuse. But are Lillian & Charlie really who they say they are? What do they want from Abigail?

Columbus is a smart & snappy affair, despite taking place almost entirely inside a single apartment. The sinuous and interwoven stories reveal themselves thread after thread and I found this to be a slow moving, but genuinely intriguing film with a capable cast that uphold this premise. Jason Lee's rendition of a sneering drunk is fantastic. This is truly slow to the boil but it's climax is unpredictable - if a little too Hollywood.

A wonderful, first class mystery thriller, but, in parts, wildly predictable. But I still immensely enjoyed the film. I was intrigued to see a film with Jason Lee that was not comedy. And he's as excellent as ever. Also Selma Blair is delightful. Beautiful and classy and a fantastic actress. Amy Smart is as watchable as she ever has been. And finally any film with Giovanni Ribisi in it is worth a look see. Also Samm Levine from not another teen movie has a brief small role. All in all a film well worth your time for the cast alone. I think that this film deserves any and all acclaim it can get. One more cast point: this has Robert guiallme (sp?) from Sports Night in a two scene cameo. Love him. And I just recognised Branden Williams from Halloween h20 in a one scene part.

Runaway agoraphobic heiress Abigail/Rachel lives a quiet, secluded life in her Columbus Circle apartment but all this is turned upside down with the arrival of new neighbours Charlie & Lillian. Selma Blair was very good as the secluded Abigail & all the characters felt well rounded & were well acted. It's not got the biggest budget nor the biggest names but this is a very watchable thriller. It threw up a few twists & turns & everything is nicely wrapped up with a good spin for the ending.

By THE MOVIE GUY on 5 Aug. 2013
Format: DVD
An elderly woman is murdered in her apartment and it is made to look like an accident. Abigail Clayton (Selma Blair) is a recluse who lives across the hall. She wants to rent the apartment to ensure her privacy. The film sets her up as the suspect killer in this murder mystery as she knows the woman better then she lets on, has a motive, and Abigail is not her real name. She is apparently the daughter of wealth who has disappeared but is able to maintain a privileged life while in hiding. Kevin Pollak is the building bumbling concierge who is Abigail's go-fer. Beau Bridges is a friend of the family, her only contact. Giovanni Ribisi plays a detective investigating the death. He has his suspicions about Abigail, the only suspect at this point.

Selma plays an excellent recluse with nervous fidgets...perhaps a bit overdone. As the film progresses the murder mystery becomes secondary as there is a far more sinister plot going on. More suspects are introduced but as the body count progresses, we run short of suspects. Interesting finish and to be honest I didn't see it coming. Unfortunately the film has a made for TV feel to it.

1 f-bomb, no sex, no nudity
