Storyline

On her wedding night, twenty-year-old Darcy Palmer empties her fiancé's bank account and flees to New York City. Along the way, she tries robbing Brianne Dwyer, who's heading to a New England college for her freshman year, and ends up killing her. Darcy assumes Brianne's identity, enrolls in her place at college, and kills anyone who gets in her way. When Darcy becomes interested in her roommate Jeanelle's wealthy widowed father, she poisons Jeanelle so that she's too sick to spend time with him when he visits the campus, and Darcy takes her place. Suspecting her dirty deeds, Jeanelle confronts her roommate, who coolly admits to killing many people and stealing their identities. Then, Darcy attacks... Just in the nick of time, Jeanelle's father rescues her from harm. Darcy escapes but is caught just as she's about to snare her next victim... Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Great Cast of Actors!
9 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tracey Gold,(Darcy Palmer),"A Crime of Passion,TV",'99, showed her great acting abilities and was able to have the audience actually hate her for this role in which she plays a very BAD BAD GIRL! The real star of the film is Shawnee Smith,(Jeanelle Polk),"Never Get Outta the Boat",'02, who plays a very rich boring and depressing rich girl who has everything and a dad who lives in a home like the White House! Perry King,(Russell Polk),"Her Married Lover",'99, plays the role as a depressed man who lost his wife and at the same time loves his daughter Jeanelle who becomes friends with Darcy. Don Harvey(Quinn Harris),"She Hate Me",'04, plays a mean bad guy who has great interest in Darcy Palmer. All the actors gave great performances and made this TV film very entertaining.
