A wealthy high powered woman suffers a horrible tragedy after which she descends into substance abuse,turning her back on her family. She later discovers that someone close to her may be behind her subsequent abduction and kidnapping.
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
A laughed my head off and almost feel guilty about it
So, have you ever had a boyfriend or husband from hell? One that cheated on you? This movie deals with one woman's very detailed plan to bring her scumbag cheating husband down and does she ever succeed. This movie was full of great writing and acting. I can see why it won so many awards. I've never really cared for Cary Elwes as I think he has mostly gotten by on his good looks. In this move he was fantastic. All of the other cast members did a great job as well. I just could never tell or predict which way the story was going to go and it left me on the edge of my seat. I love the way the story unfolded. Also, if you are a fan of Z Nation like me, you'll get a kick out of seeing Russell Hodgskinson in this film. He is so damned funny! It's always a treat to watch a movie that is truly original like this film. I highly recommend it although there is a lot of profanity which is why I didn't give it 10 out of 10.
