Storyline

Widowed for three years, judge Monica Barrett is surprised to learn that she is on the initial long list of twenty under consideration to fill the current Supreme Court vacancy. Her confidantes in the know believe that although she is not as high profile as some of the other nineteen, she has a good shot of the appointment because she is seen as being fair, knowledgeable and non-partisan, as witnessed by the support she receives from opposition Senator Garland Wolf. But most importantly, she doesn't have any skeletons in her closet, at least to that she will admit or of which people know. While on vacation alone in San Francisco, she meets Irish writer Jack Sullivan, who begins to woo her. Being naturally cautious but a good judge of character, she does go out to dinner and have drinks with him, but she does not divulge her real name or her real job. After their encounter, she learns that Jack is not who he appears on the surface as he begins to stalk her with incriminating evidence ... Written by Huggo

Engrossing movie
10 April 2007 | by (Tulsa OK) – See all my reviews

Anne Archer is above the level of the normally "B" actresses which you're more apt to find on this type of Lifetime/TV film. I think she could be termed an "A-list/supporting" performer, having appeared as Harrison Ford's wife in the Tom Clancy flicks, with Michael Douglas and Glenn Close in "Fatal Attraction," etc.

She's a competent, likable presence, and her performances (including this one) can convey the drama, risk, and even danger, without the excessive histrionics often employed in flicks of this genre.

Here she is a widowed prominent judge, and the leading candidate for the vacant Supreme Court seat. During a vacation in San Francisco, she meets a younger man, apparently a charming Irish author. Through no intent on her part, she is placed (to say the least) in an extremely compromising position.

The story unfolds as she proceeds (under the tutelage of an expert liaison/consultant) on doing all the things a candidate for this sort of position might do (clothing choices, speeches, press conferences, visiting other cities, etc.). She finds herself encountering this same individual (who had disappeared from the San Francisco hotel) in various personas and various locales, receives some ominous calls -- and there is a well-presented air of mystery and danger for her as to exactly why this is occurring and particularly who else, if anybody, may have a hand in it.

The remaining cast is good, and the story interesting, and there aren't the gratuitous, over-the-top contrivances which this genre often contains.
