A terrific production of a true crime
6 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this real-life crime drama well. The actual event itself hit the city of Boston with the force of a bomb. The cunning husband preyed on people's prejudice when blaming a person of color for shooting his pregnant wife (their unborn baby subsequently died) when in fact he had planned the whole thing himself (this is not a spoiler, as this crime was well-publicized). It was an especially interesting drama to me, given the excessive amount of press it received, and since I myself was due with my first child at the same time the wife was. I remember thinking Ken Olin from "thirtysomething" did a great job as the husband. A few true life details were omitted/changed, but on the whole this was a pretty good production for a TV-movie. I'd give it ***.
