Storyline

Sante Kimes found a rich man, Ken, but he wasn't dumb enough to marry her. So her son Kenny Jr. isn't co-heir with his step-siblings. However the boy is made her accomplice in an endless series of shameless crimes, from shoplifting to elaborate scams. After her four year jail term, Kenny is unable to escape her clasp again. When his father dies, he's dragged along throughout the US as an 'enforcer' for even more daring crimes, as she's determined to avoid jail - by murdering dangerous witnesses. Written by KGF Vissers

Knowing its TRUE, makes the unbelievable, believable.
15 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Judy Davis is mesmerizing as the pitiful, warped Sante Kimes. Her sons (the actors) are both wonderful in their roles as well as her husband. Its a nonstop ride of dark comedy and over the top performances that are actually taken from real life scenarios. I think its an Emmy nod for Davis. It still should be made into a feature considering the wealth of real life situations that were never realized because of time, and the fact that this mother/son duo is so rare and full of intrigue as to what took so long as to where they finally ended up in jail for life after several decades of murders, cons, and dysfunction. This movie just touches the surface of the horrors they inflicted as part of their entertainment of life. I loved the movie and the direction is what moves it along so well. Altogether a great TV movie and entertainment.
