A vicious psychopath murders your fiance?, then rapes you. Do you call the cops, fight back, run like hell? Or do you bond with your tormentor? Events that plunge emotionally fragile Hope Masters (Cheryl Ladd of TV's Charlie's Angels) into a living nightmare become more monstrous when, frightened into believing the twisted, self-serving tale her attacker (Sam Elliott) weaves, she comes to view him as a hero. She trusts him, depends on him, lets him become part of her life. And Hope lies for him - a lie that leads to her arrest and trial for her fiance?'s murder. The fact-based A Death in California locks a heartbreakingly vulnerable woman, a manipulative killer and viewers in a bizarre dance of crime, punishment and death.

This is a great movie. If you are familiar with Oahu, you will enjoy seeing the old cars at famous landmarks. The movie has its share of romance and action. It also shares how the Hawaiians of that era felt about the people from the mainland who invaded and stole the islands from them.
This is a movie based on the book of the same name, which is a fictionalized version of an actual incident, & murder, that occurred in Honolulu in 1930. This film is very well done & follows the book closely. If you enjoy this film I would definitely recommend reading both Blood & Orchids, & the actual account of the crime, Hawaii Scandal, which includes actual testimony at the trials that happened when Duke Kahanamoku & his brother Sam were deputy sheriffs in Honolulu, there was still taro growing in Waikiki, the Moana Hotel was 29 years old & the Royal Hawaiian Hotel was new. Legendary early 20th century barrister Clarence Darrow participated in the actual murder trial in Honolulu.
