Shattered: Directed by Natasha Kermani. With Ray Wise, Molly Burnett, Arianne Zucker, Jonathan Camp. Shattered is based on true events about family betrayal, love lost, and a dark destructive secret that swirls around a high powered political family in the Deep South. Kate Stenson (Molly Burnett) dreams of an enviable life as the quintessential Southern Belle. She marries Ken Burnett, the son of the town’s powerful Mayor – a controlling father who will do anything to protect his position. Kate has two children with Ken – a biological daughter, and an adopted son, named Logan (Tate Birchmore). But Kate’s seemingly perfect lifestyle begins to fray at the edges as she discovers that Logan suffers from severe mental health issues. Kate’s journey to uncover the true story of Logan’s past reveals a dark secret that can destroy the entire Burnett legacy. As Kate investigates – with the aid of a new friend – to unmask the history behind Logan’s illness, these unimaginable family secrets surface, putting her in unforeseen danger.

“So, I hesitated on this one because it had the appearance of a made for tv BS movie, but I did like it and think it is slightly underrated for what it is. It is not necessarily any form of scary thriller, but it is a mystery of sorts and the main female character pulls it off. Anyone who has spent significant time in that part of the US will recognize the thickness of the mystery. The female lead is a better actress than expected. Worth the time spent watching it on this lazy day off I am treating myself to.”
