Double Jeopardy Review
I love movies like this! Very much an “I-don’t-know-what’s-going-to-happen-next” type of movie starring the great Ashley Judd and Tommy Lee Davidson. I know…those are called thrillers. But all thrillers aren’t created equal. I need realistic thrillers. Stuff that could actually happen before I’m interested.
The movie starts of quickly building some tension when when Libby Parsons (Ashley Judd) and her husband Nick Parsons (Bruce Greenwood) go sailing on a boat. After a romantic night on the boat, Libby wakes up with blood everywhere. Her husband’s gone and nowhere to be found. As she’s trying to figure out what the hell just happened, she sees a bloody knife and picks it up. A coast guard then catches her with a knife in her hand. It doesn’t look good for her, and she’s ultimately convicted of murdering her husband and sent to prison. She quickly finds out her husband isn’t dead, and the rest of the movie is all that ensues.
Ashley Judd carries this movie. She shows the masculine and feminine side of her character, and she did both pretty badass.
