Pretty good, amazing ending
14 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

In Saint John, New Brunswick, Andrew meets Jane in a museum in front of a painting she did. Jane is deaf, but Andrew speaks just enough sign language to get himself in trouble. Fortunately, Jane is understanding and charming. Andrew is at the museum with Debra; both are lawyers who were working on the same case earlier in the movie. Jane is there with her abusive but rich husband Noby, who sells half the concrete in Canada and also has a trucking business.

Jane asks Andrew to work on getting out of a prenuptial agreement so she can divorce Noby--she would get more if he died. Andrew and Jane get quite close.

When Noby is killed, Jane is a suspect, and she asks Andrew to be her lawyer. Debra ends up working on the prosecution side.

This was a pretty good murder mystery. Nothing special, and we know who did it, but the investigation is interesting, with plenty of plot twists, including some truly remarkable ones at the end. Hint: watch for the girl popping balloons. That means something big is about to happen that will change everything.

Daniel Pilon gave the outstanding performance as the lead prosecutor, occasionally appearing in scenes we later find out occur after the conclusion of the trial, talking about what it takes to commit the perfect murder. Marlee Matlin was also quite good as Jane. And Robbie O'Neill made investigator Frank quite a character.

It wasn't the best murder mystery ever, but I enjoyed it.
