too many coincidences to make this palatable.
3 April 2015 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

"The Guilty" is a 1992 TV movie starring Michael Kitchen. He plays Steven Vey, an excellent attorney who is totally self-involved, arrogant, and amoral. He lives with his wife and her children, whom he doesn't like.

Steven becomes interested in a young secretary, Nicky (Caroline Catz). One night, they have drinks together and go to her apartment. He wants to have sex with her, but Nicky realizes it's a mistake. After all, he's her boss and he's married. Steven doesn't take no for an answer and rapes her.

Nicky is too traumatized to report it or do anything about it, but Steven is bothered by her presence and has her fired. Then he is made a Judge. Nicky sees an opportunity to threaten him with going public if he doesn't resign.

A subplot concerns a young man in Birmingham who, learning he is adopted, goes searching for his father.

This miniseries is the stuff of soap operas. I like soap operas but not when I'm watching a British TV miniseries with Michael Kitchen, all of which indicates a better story. There were too many coincidences to make this remotely believable. Plus I didn't like the ending at all.

Apparently this was trying to make a point about justice and the people who judge us, which is depressing enough without insulting the viewer's intelligence.
