I usually like Nicole Kidman, but not this time. I didn't like how the movie started, with Nicole's narrative, and did not watch the movie.

Not the most entertaining of films. Although Kidman and her supporting actors all perform well, I found the storyline too predictable and not all that interesting.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

Suzanne Stone (Nicole Kidman) has always been obsessed with being on television, aspiring to become a world-famous broadcast journalist.
She marries Larry Maretto (Dillon), using his family restaurant business to keep herself financially stable, and takes a job as a part-time secretary
at a local cable station WWEN in the hopes of climbing the network ladder. Through relentless persistence, she's eventually promoted to doing the station's
evening weather report.

When Larry starts telling her to take time off from her career to start a family and help out at the restaurant, Suzanne immediately begins plotting to get rid of him.

To this end, she uses the high school subjects of the TV documentary she's been making, Teens Speak Out; she seduces one of them, Jimmy Emmett (Phoenix), and manipulates
him and his friends. Russell Hines (Affleck) and shy Lydia Mertz (Folland), into killing Larry. With the help of Russell and Lydia, Jimmy ultimately commits the murder.

Though Larry's death is ruled as the result of a botched Burglary the police stumble across a Teens Speak Out clip of Suzanne at Jimmy's school, hinting at a
relationship between the two. The teens are arrested and connected to the crime scene. Lydia makes a deal with the police to converse with Suzanne while wearing a wire
and Suzanne unwittingly reveals her hand in the murder. However, despite this damning evidence, Suzanne argues that the police had resorted to entrapment
and is released on bail.

Basking in the media spotlight, Suzanne fabricates a story about Larry being a drug addict who was murdered by Jimmy and Russell, his purported dealers. Jimmy and
Russell are sentenced to life in prison Russell gets his sentence reduced while Lydia is released on Probation.

Meanwhile, Larry's father, Joe, realizes Suzanne was behind his son's death and uses his Mafia connections to have her murdered. The hitman lures Suzanne away from
her home, kills her, and then places her beneath a frozen lake.

Lydia gains national attention by telling her side of the story in a televised interview, becoming a celebrity. Larry's sister, Janice, practices her Figure skating
on the frozen lake where Suzanne's corpse is hidden.
