  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Fifteen years after a dead woman is found in the hotel room of entertainers Vince Collins (Firth) and Lanny Morris (Bacon), journalist Karen O'Connor (Lohman) contacts Vince and convinces him to tell her his story. When she unexpectedly meets Lanny on an airplane, she lies about who she is and the two enter into an unlikely relationship. As Karen becomes involved with the two ex-partners, events become more mysterious and secretive, and Karen tries to discover just exactly "Where The Truth Lies." Based on the novel by Rupert Holmes. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD picture exhibits a beautiful color palette with richly saturated hues, natural fleshtones, and deep blacks. At times, the picture is soft and hazy, providing a mood that is appropriate in creating a nostalgic look for the 1970s setting. Minor flecks of dirt are inherent in the source element. Overall, the picture is quite clean, with little in the way of bothersome pixelization, although some minor edge halos are evident at times. (Suzanne Hodges)
