Woman Wanted is a 1999 film directed by Kiefer Sutherland (later credited as Alan Smithee). It is based on a novel by Joanna Glass, who also wrote the screenplay. It stars Sutherland, Holly Hunter, Michael Moriarty, and Sutherland's mother, Shirley Douglas.


The story is about a woman (Holly Hunter) who works as a housekeeper for a widower (Michael Moriarty) and his adult son (Kiefer Sutherland).



Woman Wanted was filmed in Winnipeg, Manitoba. One of the notable features of the film is that "Alan Smithee" is listed as one of the directors, meaning Sutherland effectively disowned the project. It was also the last film to use the Alan Smithee credit, which was discontinued later in 2000.


The film won two awards.[1]
