'Til Death Do Us Part

A deep dive into the shallow end of the melodrama pool with predictable results. An improbable plot centered on a faked death is carried as a badge of honor. The film's moral viewpoint may be in the right place, but the plot construction from director-screenwriter Chris Stokes is too ludicrous to make the story in any way relatable to anyone. A wife (Annie Ilonzeh) fakes her own death in a car crash to escape an abusive husband, and takes on a new identity and job in hopes he won't find her.

Watch out for: Physical violence, fleeting rough language and profanities.

Rated: A-III, adults; MPAA: PG-13
