Corporate climber Julie Styron (Stockard Channing) has little in her life besides work, very few friends and is so convinced that she is about to be side-lined at work that she visits a head-hunter, Nick Harris. Meanwhile, she has just sacked her personal assistant Paula (Julia Stiles) for failing to turn up to a major presentation on time. However, when Nick offers Julie his job, she backtracks and tries to woo Paula back. But Paula knows a nasty secret about Nick and is intent on revenge.

High-flying corporate climber Julie Styron (Stockard Channing) has to perform well at her next presentation to clinch the deal of a lifetime. When her new assistant, Paula (Julia Stiles) arrives late with her presentation materials, Julie promptly fires her. However, when the two meet by chance later in a hotel bar, Julie attempts a reconciliation, but Paula swiftly turns the tables on her. As the night progresses, things take a dark turn as a complex battle of power, authority and wits emerges.

Your tendency is to think the Julie and Paula are women at the opposite ends of the same road, but that is only partially true at best. For Julie the job has become everything: she is an "uberfrau," to quote Paula, who is divorced, childless, and drinks scotch just like a man. In contrast, Paula dismisses her work as "only a money job," declaring she is really a writer, collecting observations of the human condition as she makes a buck. Despite some rough spots, the two get along together pretty well, playing a quick mind game in the elevator with some businessmen, playing around in the pool during a swim, and chatting in the sauna. But then Nick Harris (Frederick Weller) shows up. He is an executive headhunter than Julie called in when she thought she was going to need a job. He ends up stuck overnight when all the flights get cancelled and he joins the two women.Read more ›
This is the "business of strangers." And this is the story within the story. Paula is the diabolical kind of person who is dedicated to introducing people to themselves so that she can watch them twist, a privileged, under-achieving Ivy League girl with machinations. Julie is a community college workaholic who never had time for a family, or love, or self-discovery, a lonely woman whose life is a parade of sterile hotel rooms, anonymous strangers, alcohol and pills. Although the story drags in a little in spots, the overall effect is edgy and fascinating, and the contrast between the principals keeps us wondering who is going to come out on top.
The action really begins when Julie, in an expansive mood with some booze and her promotion to CEO, shows some interest in the girl she just fired for being late to a presentation. It's not clear what sort of interest that is. Julie responds as a spider coaxing a fly into the web, but it's not clear what she's up to. They go to the pool and play around, get on the treadmills at the gym and run. They go back to Julie's suite and drink some more.Read more ›
