Storyline Heading

Three people. One triangle. A wealthy and powerful husband. The intelligent, beautiful young woman he married. Her soulful and attractive lover. A dangerous combination, to be sure. Perhaps a deadly one. But in the final scheme of things, a perfect murder may be as impossible to achieve as a perfect love.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Suspense Thriller - A Perfect Murder is a suspense thriller which will satisfy viewers looking for visceral thrills. Fans of Michael Douglas and Gwyneth Paltrow may enjoy the actors in roles similar to their most popular previous work. Viewers expecting tight plotting may be disappointed in the way events unfold. The tone and performances, however, may be strong enough to keep audiences intrigued. Potential viewers should be warned that the violence is fairly graphic on at least one occasion.

Critic's Review Heading
Average
You'll be seeing ads for A Perfect Murder trumpeting "from the director of The Fugitive," which should set off a few alarms since Andrew Davis has made a couple of awful films in the five years since The Fugitive. I'm pleased to note that Davis directs A Perfect Murder with plenty of style and savvy. Too bad the script is such a mess. All three lead roles are well-cast and well-performed, and the film's atmosphere is crafted by Davis into a satisfying package which will likely keep you intrigued while you're watching. Watch out for the drive home, when the pointlessness of some plot points and the insulting over-emphasis of others may fall apart in your head so fast you'll lose sight of the road. A Perfect Murder is about as strong a film as you can make from such feeble material.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Three people. One triangle. A wealthy and powerful husband. The intelligent, beautiful young woman he married. Her soulful and attractive lover. A dangerous combination, to be sure. Perhaps a deadly one...

Millionaire industrialist Steven Taylor (MICHAEL DOUGLAS) is a man who has everything but what he craves most -- the love and fidelity of his wife. A hugely successful entity in the high-stakes New York financial world, Taylor proudly considers Emily Bradford Taylor (GWYNETH PALTROW) his most treasured acquisition. However, beneath Taylor's controlled veneer, he loves his wife, even needs her -- though he could never tell her just how much.

But Emily wants--and needs-- more than just her role as a dazzling accessory in her husband's world. Brilliant and sophisticated in her own right, Emily, who works as a multi-lingual translator and aide to the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, has been involved with David Shaw (VIGGO MORTENSEN), a talented but struggling downtown artist who provides the emotional fulfillment for Emily that Steven cannot and will not muster.

For months, Emily and David's affair, carried out in secret, passionate trysts in his Brooklyn loft, has been leading to what David hopes will be the demise of Emily's marriage and the beginning of their new life together.

It's only a matter of time before Steven Taylor learns the truth behind his wife's increasingly distant behavior toward him. And when he does, the knowledge sets in motion a scheme as complex as a lethal board game. The goal? That most impossible and terrible of aspirations -- a perfect murder -- with Emily as the target. Jealousy may be one motive. Her considerable trust fund may be another.

But in the final scheme of things, a perfect murder may be as impossible to achieve as a perfect love... and once foul play is in the air, the cat-and- mouse game that ensues reveals the sharpened claws of some unexpected predators.
