Under Suspicion – carnival reaction

This article is over 20 years, 11 months old
Under Suspicion is a film set in the US-run Caribbean island of Puerto Rico. It's a hot and sticky night. People dance on the streets. It's carnival time. A successful, rich lawyer gets ready to make his speech at a glitzy fundraising charity dinner-the island has recently been devastated by a hurricane. The day before the lawyer found the body of a raped and murdered girl while out jogging. It's the second such murder in recent weeks.

Under Suspicion is a film set in the US-run Caribbean island of Puerto Rico. It’s a hot and sticky night. People dance on the streets. It’s carnival time. A successful, rich lawyer gets ready to make his speech at a glitzy fundraising charity dinner-the island has recently been devastated by a hurricane. The day before the lawyer found the body of a raped and murdered girl while out jogging. It’s the second such murder in recent weeks.

From then on, through a long hot night, appearances are slowly peeled away onion-like, layer by layer. Along the way issues of age and youth, vanity and jealously, truth and lies, wealth, power and sexuality feature heavily, along with some very surprising twists. Well worth seeing.
