Nora Roberts' Carnal Innocence

Nora Roberts' Carnal Innocence

Peter Markle (2011)

15 Certificate


Our Score
A town called Innocence proves to be a deadly hotbed of secrets, lies and old family feuds in this pedestrian Deep South potboiler based on the Nora Roberts bestseller. Combining unconvincing romance with a clumsy whodunnit, it sees burnt-out concert violinist Gabrielle Anwar become dangerously entangled in a serial-killer case when she falls for privileged local lothario - and prime suspect - Colin Egglesfield, after moving into her late grandmother's house. Clich├ęs abound as a rushed and far too convenient love affair takes centre stage, minimising the impact of the rising body count and obligatory (though transparent) red herrings. There's a sprinkling of tension when the murderer's finally unmasked, but poor pacing and ridiculously melodramatic performances ultimately ensure an unsatisfactory climax.


World-famous musician Caroline Waverly moves back to her quiet home town, hoping to establish a simpler life. However, her return coincides with a spate of killings, and as rumours spread that a serial killer is on the loose, she begins to worry she may be the next victim. Thriller based on Nora Roberts' novel, starring Gabrielle Anwar and Colin Egglesfield.
