Storyline

Victor Sandeman is a senior partner with Brunel Global Securities. He is experiencing major financial problems, ones that can be solved if the planned $100 million merger of the company takes place. However, the company's owner, Raymond Brunel, is against the merger. Thinking that he can overpower the ineffective David Brunel, Raymond's grandson and the company's heir apparent, Victor murders the elderly Raymond (trying to make it look like a death by natural causes) so that he can go ahead with the planned merger. The one glitch in the murder is a possible witness, Christine Sternwald. A paralegal and aspiring lawyer, Christine is just putting her life back together following a sexual assault three years earlier. When Victor and Christine meet shortly after the murder in a fender bender with Victor driving the deceased Raymond's car, Victor is forced to identify himself to her as Raymond Brunel. Because of this chance meeting and the possibility that she did see the murder take place... Written by Huggo

good TV movie
18 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Natasha Gregson Wagner and Currie Graham give realistic performances in The Accidental Witness, which premiered on Lifetime last night. Wagner stars as Christine, a paralegal with aspirations of becoming a lawyer. Graham stars as Victor, a shady partner in an investment firm. When their paths cross, their lives change dramatically and in an ugly way. Aaron Pearl is adorable in the role of Christine's fiancé, and handsome Richard Courtney also appears as her assistant.

The score is quite good, and it dovetails nicely with the dreary Seattle setting. This thriller held my attention from start to finish--it is worth a look.
