Based on a real-life 1996 murder in Texas. When violence mars the friendship of popular mortician Bernie Tiede (Black) and mean-tempered widow Marjorie Nugent (MacLaine), the neighbours' sympathies aren't with the victim. Black and MacLaine are well-cast but underused, and the faux-documentary style robs the film of immediacy.
