Storyline

Only a few weeks after her husband's mysterious death, Maureen returns from a cruise with handsome Brit Oliver Vance in tow. Her son Scott is mortified. He still can't believe that his father - a world-class athlete - actually drowned. When Maureen and Oliver announce wedding-plans, Scott's world begins to fall apart. Oliver's attractive daughter Kelly shares Scott's distrust of the impending marriage - and proposes a theory of her own: is it possible that Maureen and Oliver have known each other longer than just a few weeks; and if so, could they have possibly killed Scott's father? The two start to investigate - and soon fall in love. But while they are united by a horrible suspicion, the investigation soon reveals some secrets that keep them apart. Scott has to realize that he can truly trust no one - not Oliver, not Maureen and definitely not Kelly. Written by Karsten Kastelan

We watched this on a recent trip to Europe and were transported to the beautiful coastlines of Costa Rica, which doubled for Florida locations in this movie. Adam Garcia is a strong male lead and pairs well with the young and upcoming Alice Evans. Their intimate scenes were tough and a core part of the film, which is both thriller and romance, as well as an action adventure. The performances were generally good throughout, especially from the always watchable Jacqueline Bisset, and held the movie together even when the script dipped at times. Supporting cast also very tight, and overall the mood of a young couple searching for the truth about their haunting family's past is well conveyed; both the fantasy and comic elements are combined by director Menzel in his first feature.
