At Risk on DVD

TVPosted by Michael Jul 11, 2011 08:04AM

Released a few weeks ago in Europe, At Risk and The Front are now both available on DVD in the US. The following review sums up both TV movies quite right:

"Patricia Cornwell's At Risk" (2011, Lifetime, unrated, $15) Lifetime kicked off a series of TV movies with this engrossing if overly fussy thriller about a Boston cop ("Rescue Me's" Daniel Sunjata) and his D.A. boss (Andie MacDowell) who set out to solve a cold case using updated forensic techniques. The case involving the murder of an elderly woman in Knoxville, Tenn., leads back to Boston in surprising ways. There's an attempt to give the characters a gritty edge but, essentially, this is a tricked-out episode of "Law and Order" with a great guest spot by Diahann Carroll as Sunjata's grandmother.
