A typical American movie with an interesting plot
5 August 2002 | by bronxx8See all my reviews

This TV-movie from 2000 was sent on the Danish TV-channel TV2 and the only reason I started to watching was because of the interesting plot. It was about a San Diego police officer (James Brolin) who, together with his 15-year old daughter (Amanda Fuller), investigates a murder in a small town called Fortune, Arizona. The town is populated by religious fanatics who accept polygamy, so every man in that town has between two and three wives. The officer asks everybody in the town about information and it seems like everybody knows something about the murder....

The ending of the movie (where the murder is revealed) was unexpected and that was good, but at some places I think the movie became a bit too sentimental (like most American movies).
