A thriller that tells a traumatic murder story through the eyes of three central characters: Carrie the daughter of the murdered woman, Douglas Hain the detective in charge of the investigation, and Sally the murder victim.
The premise of the mini series seems a good start. Only there were many off-putting characteristics of the filming and acting. The filming was in our face, strange angles and placements. Creative intensions but didn't work. The acting was as if the director was seeking short, choppy bursts of emotions, anger, dismay. Seems many character's anger took over for acting. No one was likeable. Not even the accused, though I wanted to like him. Just he is directed to act in a strange style. Petty office antics with holes to the story. An Odd Duck of a mini-series. Don't waste your time. Acorn TV where I watched it could just leave it off the roster.
