Synopsis by Mark Deming
Part suspense story and part video game, Tender Loving Care is a feature-length interactive DVD presentation that is created to react differently to each viewer's individual response to the events. John Hurt plays Dr. Turner, who involves the viewer as he explores the histories of the films other principal characters -- his lovely but disturbed patient, her short-tempered husband and a sensual but devious nurse. The answers each viewer gives to Dr. Turner's questions will altar the shape the ongoing story in a different way and add up to a special psychological profile he assembles for each participant. Tender Loving Care was created by the same team that designed The Eleventh Hour and Guest.
