Did You Know?


Natasha Henstridge (Cassidy) played the oldest of the Rydert sisters, though Kelly Rutherford (Jane) is nearly six years older than her. See more »


A couple of items reveal this was filmed in Canada. Even though the film is supposed to be set in the US, near the end the police helicopter shown has a Canadian registration number. Additionally, Jane's Sergeant chevrons are upside down from how they are worn on US police uniforms. They are worn that way on Canadian police uniforms. See more »

User Reviews

Good acting especially from Kelly Rutherford
24 January 2015 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

It's so great to see the lovely Kelly Rutherford of Gossip Girl stretch her dramatic acting abilities as a police officer. You might not think it but she can play both the high society matron and a cop just as well. Her fiancé is played by her Gossip Girl co star Matthew Settle. They always work well together. Her sister who is released from a mental institution after a long confinement and comes to stay with her. She is played by a regular of lifetime movies the versatile Natasha Henstridge of Species fame. With 3 A list for TV actors it's got to be better than the run of the mill lifetime thriller. It's entertaining enough and not as obvious as you would think and remains plausible. Picturesque coastal town for a filming location. Things don't get too outrageous or unbelievable. Worth a watch.
