I have to say that Mimi Rogers gives probably the performance of a lifetime playing Melody Woodman, a rich and wealthy Jewish housewife in Los Angeles, California. Her husband Stewart Woodman is played by Elliot Gould who really shows his acting ability playing this despicable son, father, brother, and husband. The Woodman murders is really a crime that should not be forgotten. It's about greed, jealousy, and a hunger for wealth and power. The Woodmans became one of the wealthiest and prominent families but their three sons were at war over the family fortune. Kim Hunter plays the matriarch Mrs. Woodman, a loving and kind grandmother, whose marriage to Mr. Woodman is not what it appears to be. She is a good, loyal, and dedicated wife. Their marriage would have been better if they were poor because money doesn't buy you happiness. The elder Woodmans are murdered after ending their fast on Yom Kippur. The relatives suspect the couple's own sons involved in this hideous crime. Nicole Thom from The Nanny has a memorable role as Stewart and Melody's daughter. Emmy winner Bonnie Bartlett plays Melody's very understanding mother. I miss these mini-series about real crime because they really go into detail.
