The Deadly Look of Love
- 2 hr
The Deadly Look of Love is a made-for-television movie released on the Lifetime Network in 2012. It stars Jordan Ladd as Janet, a bored housewife in a small town, who finds solace in the drama and passion of paperback romance novels. She's dissatisfied, but believes there's nothing more to expect from her days-until the arrival of Brett Becker (Vincent Spano) in her life and her neighborhood. Brett, who is already married, becomes the focus of Janet's over-active mind and unhealthy obsessions, and her dreams and expectations for the person she believes to be her "white knight" lead quickly to terror. The juxtaposition of fantasies about perfect romance with the reality of violence and fear drive the drama within this film, which is written and directed by thriller and art-house veteran Sollace Mitchell.
