Storyline

Police detective Bruning investigates the murder of model Vivian Jamison in rich businessman husband James' home. He sees no reason to doubts the evidence pointing at her latest lover, neighboring troubled, fatherless high-school teenager Michael Nowlin, who soon makes a run for it but is caught. The knave convinces his mother Sandra Nowlin of his innocence, but the female 'top lawyer' she hires is no real help. Meanwhile the ex-con liquor shop clerk who could provide Michael with an alibi is murdered. Written by KGF Vissers

A Thriller
8 July 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is made for television. Maybe the kind of entertaining low budget thriller that is being left behind, for glossier entertainments but it caught my attention and held it for the whole film, that is very unusual these days! The simplicity and clarity of the acting, and the lack of posturing, ambiguity were refreshing. We care about the characters, especially the mother, I couldn't help thinking that is believable that is wonderful what she is doing for her son, even if I thought he was guilty. The writing and directing were like clockwork, perfect as far as I am concerned. Its been a long time since I sat through a movie. The mother played by Tracey Nelson was super ( she happens to be the daughter of the late great singing star Ricky Nelson) Hey I could cynically say this is a formula made for TV but I call it good entertainment.
