FRAC­TURE (2007) GEM, 8.30PM, M, CRIME

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

This is a clever lit­tle court­room cat-and-mouse game that should keep you guess­ing un­til the end. An­thony Hop­kins is Ted Craw­ford, a struc­tural en­gi­neer who dis­cov­ers his wife is cheat­ing on him, so he sets in mo­tion a plan to shoot her and get away with it. His plan, how­ever, re­lies on ev­ery­one in­volved in the case act­ing as he pre­dicts. To en­sure ev­ery­thing goes as planned, Craw­ford care­fully stud­ies his op­po­si­tion, pub­lic pros­e­cu­tor Willy Beachum (Ryan Gosling, above). Beachum is just about to leave pub­lic prac­tice to take up a pres­ti­gious po­si­tion at a pri­vate firm and see­ing Craw­ford banged up will be one of his last tasks as as­sis­tant district at­tor­ney. When Craw­ford chooses to rep­re­sent him­self, he and Beachum go head-to-head in a case that will thrill. ★★★✩
