Storyline

This is the fact-based made-for-TV movie of Laurie Kellog, who was accused of the murder of her husband Bruce in May 1992, told in flashbacks while she's waiting for her judgment. When she was 16 she met the 15 years older Bruce Kellog, a charming guy, and moved in with him shortly after. What she didn't know was that he "bought" her from her stepfather for 500 bucks. First she's happy to serve him, but not long and Bruce shows his real face. Written by Goruda Shiro <gorudashiro@aol.com>

Quotes

[last lines]
Laurie Kellogg: [narrating] I dreamed of Bruce coming to the prison, that he was going to come and get me. He grabs me right by the hair and walks me out of here telling me that it really irritates him because the dishes weren't done and the laundry was being backed up and that I had things to be doing. What am I doing hanging around doing nothing? And my heart is filled with love. And then I wake up and I remembered he was dead. Marlene was wrong. The jury found me guilty and the judge sentenced me...

Wonderful movie
17 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful movie. It shows us just how venerable we as women are in our society. Our society makes us (women) dependent on our parents and men to take care of us. People who do not believe this do not live in the real world. Women do not have the same opportunities as men in the work place, etc.

I think this movie shows just how dependent Laurie was on Bruce and just how much she loved him and wanted and needed his approval. Jennie Garth did a wonderful job portraying Laurie, as did the rest of the cast portraying the other victims involved in this "crazy abuse trap". I think every young woman in their early teens should see this movie and learn early that abuse is not normal in relationships.
