Our Score
Dreams, infidelity and murder prove a messy combination in this underdeveloped mystery tale. Adding good looks and an average performance, Star Trek: Enterprise's Jolene Blalock plays a therapist who's drawn into a homicide case when one of her patients is strangled. While trying to help ascertain "who done it?", she predictably stirs up her own demons, making this flashback-heavy TV movie more about her shallow soul-searching than finding a killer. Consequently, the increasingly unconvincing narrative has little drama or tension; a weakness underlined by a lazy and obvious climax. But it's the incongruous visuals that are the biggest irritation, distracting attention with their jerky close-ups and abrupt camera swings.


A psychiatrist decides to investigate when one of her patients is murdered, placing her career and marriage in jeopardy as she becomes obsessed with the case. As the truth comes to light, she is forced to confront her own inner demons. Mystery, starring Jolene Blalock, Martin Cummins and Carrie Colak.
