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

Unexpected Joy and Adventure !
9 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Revenge as theme for a movie mostly scares. But not in this one. Here the revenge is so unique that the quality of the cast isn't the main thing for entertainment. Seldom i watched such an original script about a lovely game of revenge! Cary Elwes is a lawyer who likes to play it dirty and unfaithful in his marriage though his wife granted him with so much love, respect and financial back-up. So highest time so give him a memorable lesson. Meet the residents of a small village where our lawyer is stranded after car trouble. One day later one tiny thing makes him the most unwanted visitor in this small and mysterious community where everybody knows everything of each other - and unlucky for him - also of him! Get some snacks & soda and invite your teen-aged kids and watch for yourself how this story will end and teach your kids that they have to follow a respectful and family-friendly life path.
