Cathy Bates plays a middle-aged house nurse accused of murdering the elderly woman in her care. On the surface, all the evidence points to her guilt. The detective investigating the case really wants to nail her, because he failed to convict her many years ago when her husband mysteriously died. Her daughter is drawn in, and has to deal with seeing her mother, who she's avoided for many years. Overall, the movie is a psychodrama, with little real action, suspense, or mystery. The pacing is barely enough to keep you in your seat, but the story is slightly intriguing. If you're into psychodramas, check it out, otherwise pass.
