Fantastic, with a twist at the end *spoiler ahead*
A fantastic movie Collins portrays the character beutiffully. She playes a woman who in the space of around 10 years marries 8 people, without divorcing any of them. It turns out she also has an adopted daughter who tries to find her mother (and father...). When complications arrise she is arrested and the truth about her past is out to her family and friends (and husbands). With an emotional twist at the end. I strongly recomend this movie!
