I Want You

This British film is set at an old beach resort, and starts with a body being dropped from the pier.

Luka Petrusic plays a young mute who is secretly in love with the beautiful hairdresser Helen played with sensitivity by sensual Rachel Weisz.

Things spirals when the teen mute tries to embarrass Helen's boyfriend with a secretly taped conversation.

This movie kind of reminded me of the over theme of films like Malena where a young teen is infatuated with an older women and goes to extreme lengths because of this obsession.
