Storyline

When her sister supposedly walks away from her troubled marriage, a woman begins to suspect her brother-in-law of killing her. And even though there is no body, nor even a murder weapon, the woman perseveres until, finally, she is able to arouse enough suspicion to bring the case to court. But this would be the only time in the history of Minnesota, and perhaps the country, that anyone would be convicted of murder without a body, making the film, which is based on an actual happening, all the more unpredictable in its outcome.

Based on a true story, and there are a few
17 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

decent performances, including Ann Jillian, as Vonnie's sister, and Graham Beckel as Detective Broadhearst (look for him in "Jennifer 8" as the villain, and also in the more recent "Brokeback Mountain").

Joe Penny delivers a decent performance as Ron Rickman, a man who spent time in a hospital for the criminally insane, after shooting two men (it is never explained how, or why). It may have helped the story if the writer had delineated the characters a bit more.

Alicia Witt and some of the other neighborhood teens belong to a youth group ("TOPS") which is run by Penny, apparently as an aide to the community, and to help teens become interested in positive community issues. Because Penny is believable as somewhat shady, and Gillian as the sister, the film holds some interest. The characterization of Vonnie is weak; a woman who smokes too much, and we just see her interaction with daughter Amy briefly, in the beginning of the film.

Overall passable, not the worst we are being offered. I would rather watch this than a soccer mom who solves crimes, which is the latest attempted serial offered by LMN network. 6/10.
