Silver Strand is a 1995 drama-thriller film directed by George Miller and starring Nicollette Sheridan, Gil Bellows, and Jennifer O'Neill. The story is set in the idyllic town of Silver Strand, a small close-knit community on the coast of California. The film follows the character of Michelle McNally (Nicollette Sheridan), a successful artist who recently moved to Silver Strand. One day, while jogging on a secluded beach, she discovers a young woman's body washed up on the shore. Michelle becomes obsessed with finding out what happened to the woman and starts her investigation, which leads her to a group of local residents who are all hiding secrets.

One of these individuals is Boyd (Gil Bellows), a charming and mysterious man who quickly becomes the object of Michelle's growing infatuation. Boyd owns a local restaurant and is a known womanizer, which immediately puts him on Michelle's radar as a suspect.

Meanwhile, Michelle's husband, Mike (Philip Granger), is a wealthy businessman who spends most of his time working in his office and has little interest in the town's activities or Michelle's investigation. Michelle's lack of companionship leaves her feeling isolated and vulnerable, making Boyd's seduction all the more dangerous.

The tension in the film builds from Michelle's mounting suspicion of the people around her, including Boyd and her own husband. She continues to pursue her investigation, even as it puts her in danger.

Jennifer O'Neill plays the role of Luisa, a successful journalist who becomes Michelle's ally in her search for answers. Together, they begin to unravel the web of deceit and uncover the dark secrets lurking beneath the surface of Silver Strand.

The film's plot is a classic whodunit, with a strong focus on character rather than action. The film's pacing is deliberate, allowing the audience to fully immerse themselves in the story and the characters' lives. The picturesque location of Silver Strand adds a layer of mystique and intrigue to the already engaging plot.

The film's cinematography is also noteworthy, capturing the beauty of the California coast and adding to the film's overall atmosphere. The performances from the main cast, particularly Nicollette Sheridan and Gil Bellows, are strong and convincing.

Overall, Silver Strand is a well-crafted suspense thriller with a strong mystery at its core. It's a compelling exploration of the dark secrets and motivations that can lurk beneath the surface of even the most picturesque small town communities.
