Storyline

Before Ruth Vincent, daughter of a state governor, and state attorney general Robert Sheldon can announce their marriage, the governor is accused of bribe-taking. To avoid the appearance of conflict of interest, they decide to keep their marriage secret. The political intrigue becomes more involved, and no one is quite what they seem. Soon Sheldon and Ruth must decide between saving the governor's career and an innocent person's life. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Suspenseful
25 August 2003 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

This sounds like a weepie but isn't. I wonder how many people were misled by the title when it was first on screens.

The two leads are good, as always. Grant Mitchell, though, is especially compelling.

It's a political suspense movie. There were many in this time, many not up to the consistent entertainment value of "The Secret Bride."
