Lucy Freers has a long-standing marriage, a nine-year old daughter, and a great family life in the suburbs of Hollywood.

When local neighbor Julia Prentice, the wife of a famous movie actor, adopts a baby in full view of the show-business media, the parenthood craze hits its peak. Soon after, Julia is found lying dead in Lucy's swimming pool, with Lucy and her husband labeled as suspects. Now Lucy must determine the truth to clear the name of both herself and her family.

Entertaining and Intriguing!
13 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and have watched it many times over. The acting, production values, and screenplay are all very good. Congratulations are due to Levinson and company. Justine Bateman and Elizabeth Pena both do a terrific job, and it was great seeing George Hamilton again. We particularly like the main character's lively narrative throughout the story. The screenplay does a nice job of picking off all those typical Hollywood characters we have come to love-to-loathe so much. We think this would make a great TV series. My wife read the book, which has many more details than the movie. But even without these details, the movie is entertaining and intriguing. If you like your who-done-its with a soft touch, then we recommend this movie most highly.
