Safe House (1998) is a made for TV movie directed Eric Steven Stahl. It premiered in the UK in late 1998 on Channel 5 and in the US on Showtime on January 24, 1999.

Patrick Stewart starred as Mace Sowell, an ex-DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) agent who believes his life is in danger from his former boss who is now running for President of the United States.

Sowell has information about the underhand dealings of his erstwhile boss at the DIA which would ruin his Presidential campaign if it ever was released into the public domain.

To complicate the issue, Sowell is in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease and has difficulty in convincing people his information is not paranoia as a result of his condition. Sowell retreats to the safety of his barricaded home, kitted out with a variety of defence and security devices to try and escape those he thinks are out to harm him.

Kimberly Williams (Father of the Bride) plays the part of Andi Travers, his carer.

The postman scene near the end of the movie includes the same actor that played in "Three Days Of The Condor" with Robert Redford. The scene is reprised almost in its entirety including the out of order ink pen. There is also a dream sequence that is strikingly similar to the postal worker's attack on Redford, and again involving the same postal worker from "Three Days Of The Condor."
