Weight of Water

Title Weight of Water
Date 2002
Summary "Two stories are told, one contemporary and one from the past. In the 1873, three young Norwegian women are isolated on the Isles of Shoals, Anethe (Vinessa Shaw), Karen (Katrin Cartlidge), and Maren (Sarah Polley). Two of the women are brutally murdered, only Maren survives - she accuses a passing stranger, Louis Wagner (Ciaran Hinds), of the crimes and he is tried, convicted, and executed. There are some hints of affairs, incest, jealousy, and revenge that all surround the case and bring Wagner's guilt into question. (http://www.themoviechicks.com/nov2002/mcrweightwater.html). Based on best-selling book by Anita Shreve."
