Film Review

A Perfect Murder is set in New York where financial expert Steven Taylor (Michael Douglas) & United Nations staff member Emily Taylor (Gwyneth Paltrow) live together as husband & wife, however it is in name only as their marriage is a loveless & cold affair. Emily has been having an affair with small time conman & artist David Shaw (Viggo Mortensen), Steven has found out about the affair & being in severe financial trouble decides to take advantage of the situation & blackmails David into murdering Emily, together they devise a perfect murder but the plan goes awry & Emily survives the attempted murder.
