Cruel Intentions

A tale of betrayal centering on two wealthy, manipulative teenage stepsiblings from Manhattan's uppercrust. It's summer break, and Kathryn has been dumped by her beau, Court Reynolds, for the innocent Cecile. Desperate to get even, Kathryn challenges Sebastian to ruin Cecile by deflowering her--thus humiliating Court by delivering Cecile to him as damaged goods. Sebastian has pretty much 'had' all of the girls in New York City up to this point, and he's gotten a bit bored of it all. Though this is too easy a conquest for him, he obliges. He sets his sights on a higher challenge--the headmaster's daughter, Annette, who recently wrote an article in 'Seventeen' Magazine about how she intends to stay pure until she marries her boyfriend. Sebastian bets Kathryn that he can seduce the chaste and pristine Annette. Kathryn believes it impossible, and agrees to the wager--and if Sebastian succeeds, Kathryn must give him a night of unbridled pleasure, something he's wanted since their parents got married.

Continuity mistake: In the final scene where Annette is driving the Jaguar and having flashbacks, watch as she drives past lovely rolling hills and pastures. Cut to a helicopter shot of her driving the car along a New York freeway (FDR I think...) This mistake has been confirmed by the director. (01:33:35)

Question: Maybe I'm just missing something here, but when Kathryn and Annette talk in the bathroom, why does Kathryn act as though she doesn't know Annette? She obviously knows who she is as she has seen her several times. We know why Annette pretends not to know Kathryn but this bit doesn't make sense.

Answer: Well, this is my own opinion, but I think that Annette and Katharine were just pretending not to know each other. Remember, Katharine doesn't know how much Annette knows and Annette knows what kind of deception Katharine is constantly pulling off. I also think that Annette uses the line "turning to God" to foreshadow (and maybe scare) Katharine. Naturally, it didn't work until the journal got out.
