The Wrong Woman


(2013) ★★

Channel 5: PREMIERE Wednesday 15 July, 3.15pm

Cop’s wife Danica McKellar is arrested for a savage parking-lot assault on a woman she’s never met. Her plight is worsened by the insensitive oaf who’s defending her on a circumstantial case that doesn’t begin to add up. Let’s hope Jonathan Bennett, the young man stalking her, is a guardian angel. In a way, he is. Any initial similarities to Hitchcock’s scarily dispassionate 1950s classic The Wrong Man have dissipated completely by the time an absurdly over-the-top ending swings into view. It’s bad, but not boring.
