The Strange Vengeance of Rosalie

The Strange Vengeance of Rosalie is an offbeat film, centered around the fascinating, although admittedly preposterous, situation of a lonely adolescent part-Indian girl (Bonnie Bedelia), naive and emotionally disturbed, who hitches a ride with a traveling salesman (Ken Howard) and leads him to her isolated ramshackle cabin in New Mexico, where she lets the air out of the tires of his car, breaks his leg and holds him captive.

Pic generally holds together on strength of engaging performances and a fair amount of tension throughout, but the mixture of serious suspenseful drama (tinged with an ever-present air of impending violence) and humorous repartee between the characters doesn’t jell. [Based on Chicken by Miles Tripp.]
