Double Jeopardy is a 1999 thriller about a loving wife who is framed for the planned murder of her husband. The film starts out with the "murder," when Nick Parsons (Bruce Greenwood) and his wife Elizabeth (Ashley Judd) go on a romantic boating weekend. One night on the yacht Elizabeth falls asleep and when she wakes up her husband is gone and her hands and clothes are covered in blood. Elizabeth is quickly arrested for the murder of her husband and her son is taken away from her. She is convicted and sentenced to prison. After six years, she gets out of jail on parole and is determined to get her son back. Knowing she never killed her husband she tries to find the real killer. Along the way she finds that her husband never actually died, but instead set her up so he could collect life insurance money. Now, with her husband already supposedly dead, Elizabeth sets out to kill her husband for real and take back her son. Finding a loophole in the judicial system called double jeopardy, she can not go to prison again for a crime she "already" committed. The film also stars Tommy Lee Jones as a smart parole officer trying to track down Elizabeth after she jumps parole.moreless
