Boxing Helena () - IMDb
The film garnered notoriety prior to its release after protracted legal battles with Madonna and Kim Basinger , both of whom backed out of the leading role of Helena. It debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January , where it received critical praise. After receiving an NC rating by the MPAA , the film was given an R-rating on appeal and released in the United States in September , but received critical backlash and was a financial failure. Nick Cavanaugh is a lonely Atlanta surgeon obsessed with a woman named Helena, whom he had one intimate experience with. Nick is in love with her while Helena holds a disdain for him. After she suffers a high grade tibial fracture in a hit-and-run motor vehicle accident in front of his home, he kidnaps and treats her in his house surreptitiously, amputating both of her legs above the knee.
Sherilyn Fenn - Boxing Helena
Get promoted. TV Shows. The movie Boxing Helena is probably better known for the court case that sprang from it than for itself. Those who felt the ruling was unjust have no better evidence than the movie itself--who in their right mind would agree to play a woman whose obsessively jealous lover cuts off her arms and legs to control her?
MPAA Rating. My Rating. Doctor Nick is the best in his surgical field, but he's a bit on the obsessed sort of way with a woman who once dumped him after one night together. The good doctor lacks coping skills, so he can't get over her.
