Trivia

While a lot of artistic license was taken in the making of this movie, it is based on the 1989 murder of Lisa Cihaski in Wausau, Wisconsin by 20-year old Lori Esker. Esker's boyfriend, Bill Buss, broke off his relationship with Esker and began dating Cihaski. Buss and Cihaski became engaged. Esker left school one night and drove 150 miles to the workplace of Cihaski and strangled her with a belt. The belt used belonged to the victim, Cihaski. Her engagement ring was taken off her hand by Esker. Esker then drove back to school in River Falls. Esker pleaded self defense, however, the act of strangulation showed intent. She was found guilty of first degree murder and sentenced to life in 1990. Esker was the Dairy Princes, like in the movie, however, Cihaski was a former Homecoming Queen. See more »

Based on a true story
26 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I will have to check my "archives" at home, but I am sure I have a magazine with an article about this murder and situation. I don't remember the names of the people involved, as the movie may have changed them, but I believe it may have happened in Northern Wisconsin in the 1980's. The magazine had a picture of the obsessed female, a brunette, on its cover, and other pictures inside of the young man and deceased female's family. The three belonged to Future Farmers of America or a similar club, if I remember correctly.

Unfortunately, I only saw the last 15 minutes of this movie and cannot comment on the quality of it, yet with Tracey Gold, Kyle Secor, and Courtney Thorne-Smith as the leads, I am sure it is worth watching.
