The portrait of a dysfunctional Nineties suburban family, where behind closed doors, alcohol and rebellion are hidden among the lie of perfection. 15-year-old Deena's sleazy, twisted boyfriend is believed - at first - to be the cause.
This was a great opportunity to bring some great old-fashioned film noir to the great wasteland that is the made-for-tv movie industry. Too bad John Wells' re-working of an old script from a previous generation is so lacking in character development or even at times coherence. The cinematography is sub-Ridley Scott, pure noir imitation.

Maybe good for laughs if you catch it coming home from a party loaded to the gills.
