Did You Know?

Continuity: While on his death bed Jules tells Pauline that her son Kippie was the killer of Hector Paradiso and that there is a SEALED letter in their safe, written by Hector right before his death, that names Kippie as the man who shot him. After Jules dies, Pauline goes to the safe to retrieve the letter. When she takes it out of the safe and opens it, it is obviously NOT sealed.See more »

a Dominick Dunne soap opera about the lives of the rich and powerful, 23 July 2005
Author: blanche-2 from United States

Inconvenient Woman is a fabulous miniseries, based on the book by Dominick Dunne. Dunne took the plot partially from the Alfred Bloomingdale scandal. The movie is hot stuff, starring Rebecca de Mornay as Flo, the waitress who attracts the wealthy Jules, played by Jason Robards. Jules and his wife (Jill Eikenberry) are married in name only. Jules falls for Flo and sets her up in grand style.

As the title suggests, Flo becomes inconvenient, particularly after Jules dies suddenly.

The film is peppered with slimeballs, and they're all excellent, including Roddy Macdowell, Chad Lowell, Grant Cramer, and Alex Rocco. DeMornay is perfect casting as Flo. Peter Gallagher is the writer on whom it falls to tell Flo's story, and Chelsea Field is his love interest from a high social station.

An Inconvenient Woman is entertaining, interesting, and sad. I loved it.
