   Movie Summary: [Horror]

    Residing within a wealthy, green, gated community in California, the Christiansens are not you usual nuclear family. Ben Christiansen (William R. Moses) and his wife Karen (Chelsea Field) have two daughters, an open marriage, and a handful of lovers apiece. When Karen announces that she wants a divorce, she winds up dead, and there are several suspects. Their fifteen year-old daughter, daddy's girl Ellie (Julia Stiles, SAVE THE LAST DANCE), never cared much for her mother, anyway. She quickly steps into her mothers role, cooking all the meals, wearing her mother's clothes, and sharing a bed with her father. Meanwhile, the murder investigation is gaining momentum. Karen had her share of enemies. Is Ellie too obvious a suspect? This extremely dark comedy, which was a hit a several festivals, combines elements of the best of Hitchcock with some heavy doses of Greek tragedy for a uniquely sinister stew with a strong bite!
