Overview

A woman accused could be either a killer or a victim in this psychological drama from director Bill Duke. Valerie Maas Aunjanue Ellis is a God-fearing housewife and artist who one day finds herself in a situation she never imaged possible -- being questioned on murder charges by no-nonsense police detective Hicks Lou Gossett Jr. and Simmons Clifton Davis, a district attorney eager to close this case. As Valerie repeatedly insists she's not a murderer, she tells the story of the last several months of her life. Valerie's husband, Dutch Razaaq Adoti, is a psychiatrist with a practice in Atlanta who was offered a high-paying job by his old friend Monica Paula Jai Parker, who works at a hospital in Philadelphia. Dutch takes the job and Valerie dutifully follows, and as she seeks solace in the women's support group at local church, Dutch spends more and more time with drug-abusing Monica, her wealthy but disinterested husband, Kevin Roger Guenveur Smith, and obsessively womanizing musician Ryan Chambers Leon. As Valerie's marriage begins to fall apart, she suspects her husband is being unfaithful, but she's shocked to discover the truth is more complicated than she imagined. Cover also stars Vivica A. Fox, Patti LaBelle, and Mya Harrison.

    Although I never heard much about this movie, I was encouraged to buy it and watch it. Wow, this was the BEST movie I've seen this year! Very good story line and a shocking conclusion. It also addresses the DL lifestyle that so many black men are living and the destruction that happens when they get caught..... A MUST SEE!
