Pretty good mystery
12 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

Jo is a college student who comes home to Seattle to find out her mother's husband is dead, and her mother goes to jail because she has a drug problem and, in the opinion of the cops, doesn't remember what she did.

Jo is determined to find out someone else committed the murder. But in the process of doing this she is told to stop interfering with a police investigation, and she gets threatened with harassment charges from a possible suspect.

Meanwhile, Jo's friend Erin is splitting up with her husband Sam, who is abusive. An affair Erin may have had could be the reason for the murder.

Another possible reason for the murder: Detective Gibson has a brother who was part of a scandal the deceased uncovered in his job as a reporter.

There are many reasons, in fact, and we get to see all the suspects in the scenarios imagined. But in the end, there's only one who did it. It is entertaining to see all the possibilities.

Brooke Nevin does a good job. At least we feel something for her character, even if her attitude of getting the job done, regardless of who it hurts, is one seen all too many times in movies and TV.

Kate Jackson's performance seems strange at first, but improves later. Her behavior would make sense if she were on drugs, but she had to get off drugs for a psychiatric examination that is part of her attempt to be found innocent.

Doug Abrahams has one of the best performances, as an ex-con who now works at a restaurant some of the movie's characters like.

Keegan Connor Tracy, as Jo's best friend, also stands out, though not at first.

It's a good enough mystery.
