The politician's wife
12 June 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Mira Sorvino, won an Oscar for best supporting actress in Woody Allen's Mighty Aphrodite. She appeared in Robert Redford's Quiz Show. Guillermo del Toro directed her in Mimic in 1997 which was produced by the Weinstein brothers. Harvey Weinstein allegedly made a play for her and he was unhappy that she would not play ball with him. According to Sorvino this affected her career in Hollywood. Interestingly when Guillermo del Toro was making Mimic his father was kidnapped by Mexican gangster who demanded a ransom. del Toro has since stated that it was easier to deal with the kidnappers than the Weinsteins!

Indiscretion is one of these Lifetime made for television thrillers elevated by the above average casting of Oscar winner Mira Sorvino and Cary Elwes.

Sorvino is Veronica, a psychiatrist, a mother and the wife of a politician, Jake who is running for election and behind in the polls. Jake may also had an affair and his slightly pro gun control stance is doing him no favours.

At a party, a frustrated Veronica enjoys a fling with an artist, Victor (Christopher Backus) however he deludes himself in believing that they have something special together rather than just a meaningless fling. Victor has temper tantrums, stalks her, he becomes friendly with her husband Jake, starts to give art lessons and maybe even sleeps with their teenager daughter. Veronica even believes that Victor plans to shoot Jake at a weekend hunting trip.

Indiscretion is a silly thriller where plausibility goes off the scales with various plot contrivances. Not only is Victor a man of artistic abilities and temperament, he is a crack shot from his army days. Victor just happens to meet Jake at a shooting range where he impresses everyone with his aim. Their daughter just happens to need art lessons. More handily Jake is so unstable, his bizarre behaviour is convenient for Veronica as the film wants to infer that he has been played by her.

Backus who is actually married to Sorvino is a terrible actor. The film is aimed at a female audience who might lap it up as time waster melodrama.
