In a Chicago jail cell, clever and charming Ellena Roberts recounts for attorney Sara Miller the details of a one-night stand that led to a heated love affair with prominent surgeon David Stillman. David's version of the facts differs entirely and he insists that he never slept with Ellena. Sure that the doctor is the one who's lying, Sara is preparing to defend her client in court when some disturbing facts emerge. Written by Schleppy

User Reviews

Another view of the talented Jenna Elfman.
2 March 2003 | by tschimkSee all my reviews

What a tantalizing look at the talent of Jenna Elfman. She moves with ease from trait to trait of a multiple-personality character. The young lady's performance certainly surprised and delighted me. Anyone accustomed to Jenna's comedic roles needs to get out of the box to truly appreciate this offering. She has serious acting skills!!!

Kate Burton presents an intriguing view of an Attorney whose feelings for her client range from compassion to exasperation. While about it, she also provides the lighter moments of the movie. The bedroom scene and computer moment are hilarious.

This is a nicely paced, character-oriented drama that makes for an entertaining evening of television.
