Incredible story of greed and spite - it must be true
Ambitious Manhattan estate agent Poppy Montgomery hooks Wall Street hotshot David Sutcliffe and is soon manipulating his every move. An outburst in the street should have tipped him off about her red-mist rages but, hey, love is blind. Soon ensconced in his East Hampton holiday home with adopted trophy twins (one of each), Poppy displays traits that are touchy to the point of looney-tunes. A poisonous story of greed and insanely spiteful behaviour which leads to unbelievable resolutions of course it's true! Poppy is Without A Trace's sweet Sam Spade here, she's a paranoid narcissist who could be fairly described as a deplorable human being and a despicable mother. Actors kill for this kind of role. And Ms Montgomery is nothing if not determined - like her Without A Trace co-star Anthony LaPaglia, she's Australian, not American. She arrived in California aged 18 carrying a book called How To Make It In Hollywood. By the way, this Canadian-made movie plays on TV in south-east Asia and in the UK as Million Dollar Murder.
