Panic Attack
19 May 2005 | by sol1218See all my reviews

(There Are Spoilers) At the start of the movie "Tell Me No Secrets" L.A assistant D.A Jess Koster,Lorie Loughlin, is being stalked by this creepy looking guy at the L.A district court garage. Later we learn that the guy terrorizing Jess is non-other then Sean Ferguson, Tracy Walter, who she's to prosecute for the rape and battery of his former girlfriend Connie Ching, Lauren Tom.

The movie gets even more dicey when it turns out that the lawyer defending Ferguson is Jess' former husband Don Shaw, Bruce Greenwald, now how's that for a courtroom drama. Jess had a nervous breakdown four years ago when her mom Pearl Koster, Michole Mercurio, walked out of the house and was never seen again.

Recovering from her breakdown Jess passed the bar and got a job at the L.A district attorneys office as an assistant prosecutor which didn't help her mental condition by dealing with the dregs of society. This lead to her having panic-attacks especially when she lost a case. The case she has against Ferfuson is taxing her more then usual with the viciousness of the crime and her former husband defending him her clients, Connie's, attacker.

Connie then all of a sudden changes her mind not to testify against Ferguson, like she told Jess that she would, because he threatened to murder her if she did and there would be no one to take care of her six year-old son Lewis with her gone. Jess get's Connie to agree to go on the stand promising her police protection from Ferguson but later Connie goes missing and is found viciously murdered with Ferguson the main suspect.

All of a sudden Jess feels that she owes it to Connie to have Ferguson put away for life since all the evidence points to him but her husband Don gets him off on a technicality, no fingerprints on the murder weapon a piece of piano wire. This almost leads Jess to have another breakdown. Eariler Jess ran into Adam Stiles, Joe Flanigan, at the courtroom who was there as a spectator and later going to buy a new pair of shoes finds him working at the store and slowly starts to fall in love with him.

I for one wondered just what Adam's role in the movie was since he had nothing at all, except being Jess' love interest, to do with what was happening in the film. Adam, who turned out be an ex-lawyer, at first came across as creepy as Ferguson with a really weird foot faddish that he used to pick up pretty girls, like Jess. It even looked for a time that he was really the person who was sending Jess sick and threatening letters, who she thought were sent by Ferguson, that was driving her to the point of insanity.

The film "Tell Me No Secrets" slowly links Jess' missing mom to what was happening to her now and the ending is truly shocking but at the same time not very convincing. It not only exposes who killed her mom, Jess finds out that she was in fact murdered, but who set up Jess to lose the case against Fergurson knowing that he's guilty of murder but planning to be his judge jury and executioner all at the same time.
