Storyline

A working woman recovering from an abusive relationship and its self-destructive repercussions meets a seemingly charming, friendly bank teller, whom she marries. Almost as soon as the marriage begins, she begins losing things and events begin occurring that she cannot remember, which all seem to be the fault of her husband. Whether she is actually insane from going off her medication or if her husband is inexplicably toying with her remains to be seen. Written by jackie norgle

A newlywed is either unstable or new new husband wants her that way
26 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A whirlwind courtship has newlywed (Shiri Appleby)thinking she's in bliss. She's the beloved daughter of a wonderful set of wealthy parents and has a tight relationship with her stepsister. She was in an abusive relationship in the past and her psychiatrist had been working with her on her precarious mental state much of it having to do with that abusive lover from the past. From day one of her courtship with her lover turned husband little things were happening, things misplaced,and more. She's trying valiantly to hold on to her sanity and decide if her husband wants her unstable or she sabotaging herself. I liked her spunk.

This new TV movie is is a bit predictable but a decent entry to to this genre.
