The Hawk Synopsis
Not so very far from the neat suburban home housewife Annie (Helen Mirren) shares with her husband Stephen (George Costigan) and two young children, a series of savage sexual murders are being investigated by the police. The killer is only known to them as 'The Hawk' - so called because he puts out the eyes of his victims.
Annie begins to feel that Stephen may be the Hawk but is tormented by indecision and dread. Her own mental history clouds the issue. Is her mind playing tricks, or is she married to a murderer?
