Defenseless is a 1991 film directed by Martin Campbell.

Plot summary

Lawyer T.K. represents Steven Seldes who claims he is innocent of involvement in making under-age porn movies. He is also her lover, so when she meets his wife things are awkward for her - he didn't say he was married and his wife turns out to be an old student friend. Next day she confronts him at his office and a fight ensues in which she injures him. But not kill him. Someone else does that.

Availability

After the film's summer 1991 theatrical run, the film was released on videocassette by Live Home Video and around the same time in Canada by Cineplex Odeon. The film was released on DVD in 2002 by Platinum Disc, but is actually a cut TV edit of the film. The DVD is now discontinued and as of February 26, 2010, no plans have been made to release a new DVD of the film.
