Storyline

Elizabeth Sheridan is a painter, living in a beautiful home on the coast near Seattle, where her wealthy husband Cole runs a yacht-building company. Elizabeth and the firm's top designer, Tony Blanchard, are having an affair. A particularly nasty blackmailer confronts her with pictures, threatening to give them to Cole; she and Tony agree to pay, but after two deaths and a torched house, things have gotten complicated: infidelity pales next to a murder charge. An high-school yearbook photo takes her further into danger. What motive might explain and connect the twists? Is she ensnared beyond hope? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Adultry and Murder
24 October 2003 | by nonjudgementalSee all my reviews

I saw this movie for the first time this week. I was sadly disappointed. It was the worst I think I've seen in a long time. Poor acting, some of which just didn't get off the ground. Boyd Kestner's character just didn't click. And the nudity scenes could have been deleted because they really didn't add much to the movie.
