When Frank comes out of prison, and meets Marie, it's a start of a new life, until she accidentally kills her abusive night club owner-ex. Frank helps burying him, when they discover a box, which turns their life upside down.
This was a rather disappointing experience. Scott Leet gave a terrific performance, there was nothing about his acting I'd have changed in the least. But the script was so sanitized as to make the movie basically useless to anyone who actually wants to know about Bill Bonin, the Freeway Killer. They might just as well have used muppets for all the more realistically it portrayed the people and events associated with the film. I don't get why they're so afraid to at least just _acknowledge_ the full depth of depravity of characters such as Bonin. They wouldn't even need to show fake rape scenes or anything, just acknowledge that the sexual element WAS his motivation. The defining feature about William George Bonin is that he was a serial lust killer
a very specific kind of serial killer - and you would never have
known it if all you had to go on was this movie. Going by this movie, you couldn't even really tell he was gay. It's ridiculous. Again, the actor was fantastic - the script, however, sucked. If you're in the mood for Mary Poppins with a mustache, this is for you. If you're in the mood for truth and realism, you won't find it here. No thumbs, 1 star.
