Storyline

Brooks Caldwell, (Cary Elwes) an erudite and handsome lawyer, seems to have it all: wealth, social status and a red hot career. His success is, in reality, a product of his marriage to his beautiful, socialite wife, Amanda, (Terri Polo) a wealthy timber heiress. Unlike most, who would remain content to enjoy a life of luxury and privilege, Brooks continues to risk everything by having extramarital affairs. Brooks' philandering, in addition to humiliating Amanda, has driven her to the point of a mental breakdown. Having been pushed over the edge, Amanda orchestrates a just and elaborate plan to bring her husband down. When Brooks leaves for a weekend romp with his latest squeeze, (Agnes Bruckner) his life quickly descends into a bizarre, nightmarish, downward spiral. Written by Anonymous

Wow, this movie blew me away
13 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What this film is about is revenge. It's listed a "dark comedy."!I guess that's a good description. I couldn't believe all of the plot twists. I never knew which direction the story was going as it's so fresh - so original. The acting was superb with Cary Elwes and Teri Polo. As soon as I finished watching it, I had to watch it again. On the second time around I noticed even more cool story twists that I noticed the first time. I checked up on the person who wrote the script and horror seems to be his usual thing. I think he is a genius for coming up with such an original script and so major League intelligent dialogue. I highly recommend this flick!
