| Based on a True Story
In Texas, the waitress Vickie Daniel (Susan Dey) is separated from her husband and raises her two children alone. When she meets the wealthy lawyer Price Daniel, Jr. (Chris Cooper) that is the son of the governor in the dinner, he offers his service for free to get her divorce. During the process, they have a love affair and they marry each other as soon as Vickie is officially divorced. They move in to his house and soon Vickie has two other children with him. Meanwhile she realizes that her husband is alcoholic, addicted in marijuana, bisexual and abusive, and she asks the divorce to him. During an argument, Vickie shoots Daniel to death and she goes to the court to defend the custody of her children and her innocence. What will be the sentence?

"Bed of Lies" is a TV drama with a story based on a true story. What really happened in the fateful night nobody but Vickie knows, but considering that she was a person from the working class that won a case against a powerful family in Texas, it seems that justice was made. The hot Susan Dey is convincing in the role of an abused wife and the efficient Chris Cooper has also good performance. The screenplay is restrained and the references to the bisexuality and the "unnatural sex" practiced by Prince Daniel are subtle. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Cama de Mentiras" ("Bed of Lies")
