Storyline

Narcissistic Saskatchewan Tory politician Colin Thatcher is engaged in a bitter divorce from his wife Jo-Ann. When a series of court rulings over the divorce go against him, Thatcher decides a more drastic solution is needed - murder! A series of attempts on Jo-Ann's life follow, most of which don't succeed. Finally one does, and the arrogant Thatcher believes he is above the law and immune to prosecution. But his arrogance proves to be his undoing, as Crown Counsel Serge Kujawa builds a case against this psychopathic monster for 1st-degree murder - charging that Thatcher hired someone to kill his wife. The true story of one of the most disturbing stories of murder-for-hire in Canada. Written by medic249a2

A Riveting Tragic Movie About Domestic Abuse

Love And Hate is a riveting tragic movie about domestic spousal abuse.I have seen this movie a couple of times, and it still shocks my sensibilities.First off, Kate Nelligan in her excellent portrayal as the abused wife Joanne Thatcher, was brilliant.Kenneth Welsh as Colin Thatcher the abusive husband was masterful!All of the actors did a wonderful job in their prospective roles.The two male actors that played the two sons of the Thatchers touched my heart.The scenery and the sets were superb.This is an above average movie production about a horrendous subject.If you get a chance to see this movie,it will not be a waste of your time.
