Editor's NoteA cable-TV weather girl who'll do anything to become a celebrity seduces a high school student and convinces him to kill her go-nowhere husband in this black comedy. Gus Van Sant's (MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO, ELEPHANT) sly satire on America's tabloid mentality is loosely adapted from Joyce Maynard's chronicle of the real-life tale of husband-killer Pamela Smart.
Cast & Crew
|Gus Van Sant - Director|
Plot SummarySuzanne Stone is a blond, glamorous, ambitious and ruthless TV weatherperson in Little Hope, N.H. She's also completely obsessed with both the notion of celebrity, and with becoming one -- no matter what she has to do. But when Larry, Suzanne's blue-collar husband, naively suggests she give up her career to raise a family, Suzanne realizes that Larry is merely an obstacle on the road to fame. She then comes up with an idea: manipulate three local teens (emotionally and physically) into killing Larry. The resulting tabloid media coverage brings Suzanne the notoriety she's always desired, and she enjoys every moment. But what Suzanne doesn't know is that small-mindedness is about to contribute to her downfall.
