Young and wide-eyed, Kathie (McPhee) falls in love with charming yet quirky real estate scion Robert Durst (Gillies), only to find their marriage turning stranger, darker and more disturbing as time passes. When Kathie vanishes in 1982, her family and friends are deeply disturbed that her disappearance isn't taken seriously by police.
For those who may remember there was a movie "All Good Things" with Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst about the same subject matter some years ago. That movie showed a longer time span of events and I think is better in some ways not so good in some ways. But the subject matter and crime is so fascinating it's still worth watching this movie.
Katherine McPhee shows she can play dramatic roles well and she is beautiful and sympathetic here. Daniel Gillies is creepy looking enough with a twitch and all - better than Ryan Gosling who is too much the good guy to be convincing as the title character Robert Durst.
You keep on thinking why didn't she just leave him but it was a long time ago and he was very wealthy so things weren't that simple.
This movie shows with enough money you can get away with quite a lot.
