Movie Details

Dominick Dunne's best-seller An Inconvenient Woman had enough plots, subplots and peripheral characters to fill 10 TV movies; this adaptation manages to pack all the essentials into a mere four hours. Dunne's beloved American Aristocracy is put under the microscope in this rambling tale of scandal, murder and revenge. Part One introduces Los Angeles business mogul and political bigwig Jason Robards. After 23 years of marriage to haughty socialite Jill Eikenberry, Robards stumbles into an affair with low-born waitress Rebecca De Mornay. Stay tuned for Part Two, originally telecast one day after Part One in May of 1991. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
