The Rich Man's Wife gets more than she was looking for in this 1996 thriller. Josie (Halle Berry) was a 17-year-old runaway when she met Tony (Christopher McDonald), a hard-working executive at a major network. Grateful for his attention and marriage proposal, Josie overlooks his drinking bouts and long hours at work. Even though both are involved in extramarital affairs, they love each other on some level. A planned vacation to repair their marriage ends on a bitter note when Tony returns to the city early. At a local bar, Josie winds up having drinks with Cole (Peter Greene), a sympathetic and mysterious stranger. Confiding that she wishes her husband was dead so she could inherit his fortune, Cole malevolently promises to fulfill her wish. A short time later, Tony is found dead in a carjacking attempt. Now, Josie is a murder suspect and is frantically working to prove her innocence.
