WHEN: Monday, May 6th, 2019 | 7:00 PM
WHY: Adapted from a book of the same name by Joyce Maynard (which was inspired by the real life Pamela Smart case), To Die For features Nicole Kidman as Suzanne Stone, a weather reporter at a small-town cable station who dreams of being a big-time news anchor, but thinks that her middle-class husband (Matt Dillon) is holding her back.
So, what's a girl to do? Have him murdered, of course!
She enlists Jimmy (Joaquin Phoenix), a high school boy who's enamoured with her, and his clueless friends. The plan doesn't work exactly as she intended, though, and her husband's family starts to suspect that she was involved in his death.
