Travis Alexander, a handsome liberal Mormon, is a successful 'motivational speaker'. In Las Vegas, his charm proves irresistible for local girl Jodi Arias, who seduces him by surprise. She follows him to his Arizona home, obsessed with becoming his wife. Called to order by his childhood buddy and the church community, Travis keeps pulling back, reminding he never promised a relationship, just sex for fun as agreed. Her absurd 'expectations' turn into stalking and ultimately lethal hatred when he dumps her for proper Mormon Katie.Written by
I have read some bad reviews of this film and I have to say, after watching the film I was pleasantly surprised.
There are parts of the story that have been altered as Hollywood expects a certain glossy finish to its films. The bulk of the story however remains the same. It is a little like fatal attraction and when you find yourself thinking that you stop for a moment and realise, "hang on, this actually happened".
The story, for anybody who knows about the case, is predictable for its genre but the lead actress Tania Raymonde is not bad in the roll at all. She plays the part of Arias quite well and her little jealous outbursts were that convincing she reminded me of an ex of mine! All in all its not a bad film. The only criticism I would have is they don't spend enough time on the trial. This film however is well worth watching!
