*some spoilers ahead*

I first saw this film on TV and was so mesmerised that I took the first opportunity to add it to my collection.

Based on a true story, this film depicts Laurie Wade (played by Valerie Bertinelli in an absolutely fascinating and extraordinary performance), a young newlywed woman whose deep troubles are ignored by her apparently willfully-oblivious parents and hidden from everyone but her husband. Her slow spiral into mental illness is depicted with - as anyone who's ever known anyone who suffers in a similar way - unerring accuracy, as she is unable to cope with daily life and then becomes destructive, storing rotting meat and writing numbers on walls compulsively, until the fateful day when she makes her way to the local school with a gun in her hand.

Not only does Valerie Bertinelli depict Laurie Wade's descent so realistically, it's also heartbreaking to watch, to the point that - no matter how terrible her behaviour becomes - I could never find myself feeling anything but sorry for her. The supporting cast is also very strong, especially Stephen Caffrey as her beleaguered husband, desperately trying to help his wife and completely powerless to do so.

This is a gripping film that keeps you on the end of your seat the whole way through. Whether you enjoy true movies, or just enjoy strong psychological dramas, I would urge you to add this to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars When no-one would listen, 16 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Murder Of Innocence [DVD] (DVD)
The innocent are always first to go, Story is fabulous with the cast are great making it better than expected. A couple get married and than after a while the problems arise. She goes out of control and with the medication she is on it just didn't work. The parents make out there is nothing wrong and refuse to help. The police can't do anything because the law isn't broken and she manages to get a gun, Now I rated this movie an A grade plus keeping you involved from beginning to end with the suspense gathering around all the time, will help reach her in time, why doesn't anyone else notice apart from her husband the unusual things going on. Now I have told you some of the story you'll have to move now and find out more as I do recommend this to watch and judge for yourself. A marvelous film that will keep you on your toes. So now pick up the popcorn and retire to the lounge room, put your feet up and relax to a fantastic show that's different as much as demanding. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars based on a true story....., 17 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Murder Of Innocence [DVD] (DVD)
Based on a true story,Vallerie bertinelli plays laurie wade,to the outside world it looks like she has the perfect life,with a nice home & husband & loving parents,but she is a woman gripped by madness & paranoia.Gradually lauries behaviour grows more alarming & bizarre as she starts storing meat in drawers & lacing things with poison,all leading up to a horrible tragedy at a primary school.Valerie is amazing as laurie & this is one of the best true life movies ive seen!

This was a very good film read the book it was equally good,
most of her problems stemmed from, her mother who appeared,
quite cold and distant, not very affectionate. would recommend
it acting was very good.
