Storyline

A woman learns that her husband has been having a very open affair with his secretary and has promised marriage. The wife sues for divorce and also sues the secretary based on an obscure law on alienation of affection, which was created to protect married couples from homewreckers. This sets a new court room consideration, as the culpability of the other woman must be defended and removes from consideration the fault of the married partners. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Really very good.
7 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

This was actually a very good movie. Based on a true story(I think) it is about a woman who sues her husband's mistress for breaking up her marriedge. It's a really good movie-the beginning drags a little, but it steadily picks up momentum and raises alot of interesting questions. This is a movie that might appeal to many, I liked it, not just because I like court movies but because I admired the wife SO much and the empowering coarse of action she took. I enjoy movies about remarkable people who fight for what they believe in. The movie constantly changes from court scenes to the events leading up to the suit to people chatting in a diner about their feelings on the issue. I'd solidly recomend watching this movie, it was well done.
