Storyline

Lainie Wheeler has two daughters, but her husband leaves them for a Thai monastery. She completely neglects her job in TV production but finds a new vocation in nursing terminal patients, even after the death of her friend in that home. She also finds a new lover, Matt Harper, who is also great with her kids, but still gets addicted to pills, causes a major accident, loses custody and needs long-term institutionalized therapy. After her release, a friend gets her another job in TV production, which makes her meet baseball star Harry Brewer. When he proves adulterous and gets too intimate, she ends up murdering him. Detective Webster investigates... Written by KGF Vissers

User Reviews

A woman hunted and a plot repeated.
13 December 2004 | by lspethSee all my reviews

Not a bad thriller, but since it doesn't appear in the credits, on screen or here, it may be of interest that the story, including the twist ending, was lifted directly from a 1985 Mexican/US joint production called TO KILL A STRANGER. The scene has been shifted from Eastern Europe to (apparently) New York and the character of the victim/heroine has been heavily reworked, but the essential shape of the plot remains identical. The details of the child custody conflict have been added to create a barrier between the protagonist and the otherwise likable cops (in the original, the barrier is political). Fairly well acted, and this movie gives Alexandra Paul a chance to work a full menu of emotions. But her boyfriend seems pretty boring.
