Adapted from a novel by Douglas Kennedy. Paul Exben has it all, a beautiful wife, two children, a successful job and a side interest in photography. It all comes crashing down at the same time like a house of cards. His wife asks him for a divorce and his boss has a terminal illness. He learns his wife is seeing a mutual friend and he goes to his house to confront him. Everything does not go as planned and Paul has a lot of thinking to do.
Some suspense and intrigue but this film didn’t match up to my expectations. The second half doesn’t seem as well thought out and I didn’t care for the ending. It is unresolved and you are left to draw your own conclusions. 3* (This movie is OK)
