Circle of Friends

Circle of Friends

Stefan Pleszczynski (2006)



Our Score
Dexter star Julie Benz plays amateur detective in this unconvincing whodunnit. Returning to her home town, the young widow becomes sure that the sudden deaths of a number of her old schoolfriends were actually down to murder. Cue lots of ominous music and an irritating bunch of rambling flashbacks, as director Stefan Pleszczynski struggles to create an air of suspense. Unfortunately, events are too slight and implausible to have much of an impact, while a slushy romance between Benz and old flame Chris Kramer only dissipates the narrative tension further. Even the attempted red herrings fall victim to the film's poor pacing and banal execution, making the killer's true identity come as little surprise.


A woman returns to her home town for the funeral of an old schoolfriend. Learning about the mysterious deaths of several other former classmates, she becomes convinced they were all murdered by the same person - and that her surviving friends are keeping terrible secrets from her. Mystery, starring Julie Benz and Chris Kramer.
