Storyline

Elizabeth Sheridan is a painter, living in a beautiful home on the coast near Seattle, where her wealthy husband Cole runs a yacht-building company. Elizabeth and the firm's top designer, Tony Blanchard, are having an affair. A particularly nasty blackmailer confronts her with pictures, threatening to give them to Cole; she and Tony agree to pay, but after two deaths and a torched house, things have gotten complicated: infidelity pales next to a murder charge. An high-school yearbook photo takes her further into danger. What motive might explain and connect the twists? Is she ensnared beyond hope? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Joanna Pacula makes this worth watching
13 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

Worth watching for a smart and sexy performance by Joanna Pacula, which stands out from the otherwise wooden performances , although Peter Onorati, as usual, plays a quirky character well. The plot has several clever twists, but is slow , and the dialogue lacks sparkle . I'd rather rent Body Heat, but wouldn't change the channel if this comes on cable.
