I'm the good daughter! I held this family together!
24 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Two sisters in law are married to trust-fund brothers. They are sons of a prominent magnate (Rip Torn, a recurring character in "Men in Black") who cares just for one of them, a well-known historian who traveled a lot and used to write book about his memories. Instead, the black sheep son set up a Ponzi's scheme in real estates, embezzling a lot of money that needed to be payed back. Anyway the historian was a distant husband and father, so the wife cheated on him with the gardener, a lady's man who didn't give a damn about her. The uptown boys are killed one after the other and the murderer has to be found inside the family.

This plot is about payback, something that sometimes occurred between relatives, mostly inside marriages. But the scheme rarely managed to succeed.
