Storyline

In a Chicago jail cell, clever and charming Ellena Roberts recounts for attorney Sara Miller the details of a one-night stand that led to a heated love affair with prominent surgeon David Stillman. David's version of the facts differs entirely and he insists that he never slept with Ellena. Sure that the doctor is the one who's lying, Sara is preparing to defend her client in court when some disturbing facts emerge. Written by Schleppy

Intriguing though a stretch
3 September 2004 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

This is a good movie, very intriguing. Jenna Elfman is a very good actress. She is totally believable in this dramatic role.

It's a he said/she said film (except that the real story is eventually revealed) but I'm not sure I believed the ending. Without giving anything away, I will only say I'm not sure I buy the ultimate decision or what happens to the Elfman character. I'm not saying it's incorrect - only that I don't buy it. I think there would have been some doubt. As far as other elements of the story, on legal grounds, it is incorrect. Nevertheless, this movie is watchable, entertaining, interesting and has strong performances.
