Storyline

Former alcoholic Ellen Richmond builds a happy family life in Suffolk with businessman Grove McCarthy and their kids Josh and Katie. After Grove dies sailing his beloved yacht Samara, she finds he left her only debts and the Audi she once saw him commit infidelity in, but police Detective Hal Kazin finds Grove embezzled $1,000,000 from a charitable foundation with his dodgy friend Ken Spradling to a tax paradise dummy corporation. Lawyer Sam Penny becomes Josh's surrogate father figure while he helps her search for the truth, and learns some she told nobody else about Grove and her, which is enormous, and convinces her to come clean to Kazin and her sister, who is far from the last to tell her part in the complex, sordid story of crimes and deceit...

Too much going on and the parents were over the hill
23 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lifetime movies have a few plots, all of which are recycled to make dozens of movies: the insane yet seductive babysitter, the "All Above Eve" scenario in the office, except the wannabe wields a knife; baby-stealing; psycho stalkers; wife killers; and the plot of "Deceit," a man lost at sea who may or may not be dead and the wife finds out things about him that she never knew.

In this story, a man (William Devane) is lost at sea, and the man's wife (Marlo Thomas) is haunted by a police detective that is suspicious about the circumstances. She also finds out about financial improprieties in her husband's business. The question is, what does she know and when did she know it? "Deceit" moves slowly, and the plot is convoluted enough that one soon loses interest. Marlo Thomas is a good actress who has made some very good TV movies; this isn't one of them. At 67, she's too old to be the mother of that little boy - in fact, it's not a stretch that she could be his great-grandmother. There was easily a thirty-year gap between Thomas and the woman playing her sister. There was one scene where Thomas was beautifully lit; if attention had been paid to the lighting throughout, she could have gotten away with it.

William Devane had too little to do.

Just not very good.
