At Risk is an intriguing 2010 thriller directed by Tom McLoughlin, and its screenplay adapted from the novel of the same name by Patricia Cornwell. The movie boasts a talented cast, including Andie MacDowell as Monique Lamont, Daniel Sunjata as Win Garano, and Annabeth Gish as Sykes, among others. The movie follows Win Garano, a charismatic and ambitious state detective, working under the Chief DA Monique Lamont. One day, Monique tells him about a decades-old case involving a serial killer who used to target young girls. She wants Garano to reopen the case and use the investigation to gain media coverage, thus increasing her chances of becoming the next State Attorney General.

However, as Garano begins to delve deeper into the case, he realizes that the new evidence he has uncovered might change the course of the investigation's outcome. He starts to wonder if there is a link between the killings and some influential people in the state's political and financial circles. Meanwhile, as he keeps digging, he starts to receive strange warnings and threats, implicating that some sinister forces are trying to stop him from discovering the truth.

The movie is full of twists and turns that keep the audience engaged until the very end. As the plot unravels, new characters are introduced, each adding a unique perspective to the story. For instance, Annabeth Gish's role as Sykes, a journalist turned TV news reporter, brings a fresh insight into the murder case from the media's viewpoint. She is also Garano's love interest, adding a romantic subplot to the story.

At Risk is not just another run-of-the-mill crime thriller. It is also a commentary on the effect of media coverage on high-profile cases and the role of politics in shaping the course of justice. It is a story of how a group of powerful people can conspire to suppress the truth for their benefit, setting the stage for a grand reveal at the end that will make the audience gasp.

The movie's direction and cinematography are noteworthy, as the scenes are shot in a way that keeps the audience on their toes. The background score is light, yet compelling, setting the tone for each scene with ease. The acting by Andie MacDowell as Monique Lamont is worth mentioning as she pulls off the role of a tough, ambitious prosecutor with grace and ease. Daniel Sunjata, on the other hand, portrays Win Garano as someone who is equally driven by success and justice, giving the character an intriguing depth.

Overall, At Risk is a movie that crime-thriller enthusiasts will love. Its engaging plot, talented cast, and meaningful commentary on power and politics make it a must-watch.
