Storyline

The lawyer Thelma "T.K." Knudsen Katwuller is having a love affair with her client, Steven Seldes, accused of making under-age porn movies through the Blue Screen Production. When T.K. meets her old college friend Ellie Seldes, she finds that she is Steven's wife and Ellie invites T.K. to have dinner with her family at her home. T.K. decides to break-up with Steven and he asks her to meet him in his office. While waiting for Steven, T.K. finds that he owns the Blue Screen Production and had lied to her. The next morning, Ellie is arrested and accused of murdering her husband and Ellie hires T.K. to defend her. Detective Beutel feels that something is missing in the case.

DVD version of this film has been cut
4 July 2007 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

Not a bad little thriller. Sure, there are some plot holes. But the production values are decent, nothing to complain about with the direction or photography. The cast did a pretty decent job with mediocre material. I rented the DVD and found that some scenes had been cut. One of the previous commentators mentioned a scene that was not in my version. Plus, there were two brief topless scenes by Kelley Overbey that were not in this version. I like gratuitous nudity as much as the next guy, but these cuts hurt the film. One wasn't totally necessary, but definitely falls into the category of character development. The other scene was major plot exposition, and the film suffered badly for its loss. IMDb doesn't have an age for Miss Overbey, and I wonder if she may not have been eighteen at the time. That's the only reason I can think of for cutting this film into incoherence for the DVD release. Too bad.
