A Stolen Life

For dramatic visual purposes, abused wife Emmanuelle Vaugier (as Stephanie) takes her seven-year-old daughter and heads for the Canadian border in a small boat during the pouring rain while firefighter husband Ivan Sergei (as Andrew Bennett) is out buying some flowers. Probably, he wants to kiss and make-up after viciously throwing Ms. Vaugier around the house. Ten years later, Vaugier is a successful realtor in Palm Springs, CA. She stole another woman's identity and started over (as Alexandra Cole) by faking her death and cashing in on a $250,000 insurance policy. Vaugier is dating handsome art museum assistant director Sean Patrick Flanery (as Brett Collins) while making sure pretty teenage Allie Gonino (as Rachel) isn't out too late with boyfriends...

After finding his wife's box hidden in the attic while exterminating raccoons, Mr. Sergei finds evidence suggesting she and step-daughter are alive. Then, we're off to the races. "Hidden Away" is hard to take. For example, they ran into problems with the age of "Sage" if she were a teenager played by an actress past her teens. We're told she "blocked" unpleasantness, but it doesn't ring true. The best course would have been to make her younger, since her parents are a stretch at being ten years older. Sergei almost steals the show by offering a more believable performance than usual for the genre. Thomas Calabro and Elisabeth Rohm lend good support. Director Peter Sullivan does well in buildings, stretching players and shots along spacious horizontals, with depth.

***** Hidden Away (7/27/13) Peter Sullivan ~ Emmanuelle Vaugier, Ivan Sergei, Sean Patrick Flanery, Allie Gonino

Hidden Away *** Since When Does Crime Pay?

A very good thriller which is hurt by the fact that at the end of the movie, committing fraud does actually pay despite what the end results are.

A mother and daughter fake their deaths to flee from the former's abusive husband. With his insurance money, they move to California and with great investments and becoming a Realtor, life becomes great for the two. The daughter was 7 when all this occurred.

Fast forward to 10 years later, the recently laid off guy discovers that they're not dead and follows them to California where the mayhem really begins. This guy is some mental case as he does away with the private investigator he had hired to track the two women and her fellow realty agent falls victim to him as well.

Yes, there are tense scenes. Yes, he is diabolical in wiring the house up so he can view what's going on at his computer; nonetheless, the fact that the fraud perpetrated by the wife goes unpunished at film's end is problematic to me.

One of the best Lifetime thrillers I've ever seen!

This was one of the best Lifetime thrillers I've ever seen! While it starts out like one of those familiar SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY-type stories where a woman flees an abusive ex-husband, this story doesn't stop moving for the full two hour running time.

Emmanuelle Vaugier plays Stephanie, a young mother who fakes her own death (and her daughter's) in order to escape her abusive husband Andrew (Ivan Sergei). Many years later, Andrew stumbles upon incriminating evidence and realizes that his late wife, and most importantly, his beloved step daughter (Allie Gonino), is still alive. So he does what any kind, loving husband would do... he murders the detective (Thomas Calabro) he hired to track them down and then goes to Palm Springs to finish the job himself. What follows is a fast-paced cat and mouse game as Andrew, like a spider, weaves a web around his prey and slowly draws them in. In the process, he seduces her best friend (Elisabeth Rohm) and threatens to destroy her new relationship with a handsome museum director (Sean Patrick Flanery). It all culminates in an exciting chase and fight aboard the Palm Springs tramway with a big action sequence I've never seen in a movie like this before. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Ivan Sergei is great as the twisted villain and really steals the show. I loved how he wasn't just a one-note baddie like the evil husbands in both SLEEPING THE ENEMY and ENOUGH. In fact, he almost makes you feel bad for him. But he really brings the crazy in a surprisingly subtle and nuanced performance. Emmanuelle plays to her strengths from shows like CSI NY and HUMAN TARGET as she basically becomes an action hero in the film's finale, and Sean Patrick Flanery plays the male eye candy but it was fun to see Young Indiana Jones and the Boondock Saint go against type... basically playing the damsel in distress.

From its opening chase in the middle of a raging storm to a finale literally dangling hundreds of feet above Palm Springs... HIDDEN AWAY was an exciting thriller you can't miss.
