Fatal Attraction - Fatal Attraction is a 1987 Movie Thriller starring Glenn Close & Michael Douglas about Dan Gallagher, a New York Lawyer (played by Michael Douglas) who is stalked by Alex Forrest (played by Glenn Close) with whom he has had an affair. The story portrays Alex's increasingly unstable behavior as a result of having Borderline Personality Disorder and feeling abandoned by Dan.
When Dan tries to end the affair with Alex, she attempts suicide, stalks him and his family, vandalizes his his car, abducts one of his children and even kills the family pet.
The original script for "Fatal Attraction" portrayed Alex committing suicide, which would have been far more consistent with Alex's BPD character, but after screen testing the original ending, the producers gave in to commercial pressure to change the conclusion of the movie to a more crowd-pleasing "hollywood shoot-out" kind of ending.
Nevertheless, "Fatal Attraction" provided one of the most striking and convincing portrayals of a person with borderline personality disorder - including Fear of Abandonment, Stalking, Child Abduction, Destruction of Property and Suicidal Ideation.
Bunny Boiling - Bunny Boiling is a reference to an iconic scene in the movie "Fatal Attraction" in which the main character Alex, who suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder, kills the family's pet rabbit and boils it on the stove. Bunny Boiling has become a popular reference to how people sometimes exhibit their rage by behaving destructively towards symbolic, important or treasured possessions or representations of those whom they wish to hurt, control or intimidate.
"Fatal Attraction" was nominated for 6 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Actress (Glenn Close).
