Storyline

Brooks Caldwell, (Cary Elwes) an erudite and handsome lawyer, seems to have it all: wealth, social status and a red hot career. His success is, in reality, a product of his marriage to his beautiful, socialite wife, Amanda, (Terri Polo) a wealthy timber heiress. Unlike most, who would remain content to enjoy a life of luxury and privilege, Brooks continues to risk everything by having extramarital affairs. Brooks' philandering, in addition to humiliating Amanda, has driven her to the point of a mental breakdown. Having been pushed over the edge, Amanda orchestrates a just and elaborate plan to bring her husband down. When Brooks leaves for a weekend romp with his latest squeeze, (Agnes Bruckner) his life quickly descends into a bizarre, nightmarish, downward spiral. Written by Anonymous

A good find
18 April 2016 | by oscarmendezSee all my reviews

I found this little gem over the weekend on the movie browser of my Windows 10. This film addresses, through the main character, the greed and moral decay of many of the 1%. A rich yuppie guy likes to cheat on his rich girl wife. The rich girl wife has had a mental health breakdown and sets up a very wicked scheme to bring her cheating husband down. The guy goes off to meet his mistress (a young girl)out in hick country. He devastates her and she offs herself. He find her dead and hauls ass out of their hotel room. Then, the weird stuff starts going down. His car is sabotaged and he ends up spending the night in his dead girlfriends little home town. The town is really angry that someone left their girl for dead. They start putting two and two together then everything hits the fan and dude is stalked like a wild animal by a dangerous mob. If I say anymore, I'm giving away some major spoilers. I don't know any of the actors in this film but they did a real good job. The story is so cool and unpredictable. Also, I live in Washington state and I am familiar with some of the locations they show. One word of warning, the film is not rated and I had my kids (9&11) with me. Suddenly, they F Bombs started flying. So, this flick is not for kids. I did not like the fowl language but apart from that, I really liked it.
