Deceptions is a dramatic thriller film from 1990 that stars Harry Hamlin, Robert Davi, and Nicollette Sheridan. The movie tells the story of a man named Jack (Hamlin) who is secretly married but has to keep his marriage a secret from his high-society family. Jack's father is a prominent lawyer, and his mother is a socialite, and they disapprove of his marriage to a woman from a lower social class.

The movie begins with Jack's wife, Elizabeth (Sheridan), being found dead under mysterious circumstances. Jack is the prime suspect, and he is determined to find out who actually killed his wife. However, he soon finds out that his wife had many secrets that he was not aware of.

The investigation into Elizabeth's death leads Jack to Las Vegas, where he meets a sultry lounge singer named Lute Mae (also played by Sheridan). Lute Mae bears a striking resemblance to Elizabeth, and Jack becomes obsessed with her. He is convinced that Lute Mae is somehow connected to Elizabeth's death and begins to dig deeper into her past.

As Jack's investigation continues, he discovers that Elizabeth was not the person he thought she was. She was involved with dangerous people, including a powerful gangster named Anthony Crenshaw (Davi), who is determined to keep his criminal activities secret. Jack also learns that Elizabeth had a child that she gave up for adoption and that Lute Mae might be her long-lost daughter.

Deceptions is a taut and suspenseful thriller that keeps audiences guessing until the very end. The movie is beautifully shot and features outstanding performances from the cast. Harry Hamlin is excellent as Jack and brings depth and complexity to his character. Robert Davi is perfectly cast as the menacing gangster, and Nicollette Sheridan delivers an outstanding dual performance as both Elizabeth and Lute Mae.

The film is also notable for its stylish visual aesthetic. The movie takes place in a glamorous world of high society and organized crime, and the sets and costumes reflect this. The costumes, in particular, are exceptional and were created by legendary costume designer Nolan Miller. Miller was famous for his work on the hit TV series Dynasty, and his designs for Deceptions are equally impressive.

Overall, Deceptions is an engaging and suspenseful thriller that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. The movie's strong performances, stylish visuals, and intricate plot make it a must-watch for fans of the genre.
