"Sea Change" is a solid entry in the Jesse Stone series, but it's the first to diverge so dramatically from Parker's source novel. The book focuses on the rape (and a murder) on the yacht and the sordid details of an old family. In the movie, the allegation of rape by a young girl is just a side-note in the main story. Jesse resurrects a cold murder case (mostly out of boredom) and finds that the guilty are still very anxious to keep the case unsolved.
Had I not been expecting a straight adaptation of the book (one of the better in the series), I might have received this movie more warmly. It's not my favorite in the series, but it's a strong mystery story. Actually, being in the dark about the new story made it a bit more engaging, since I didn't know exactly how it would end.
Nice to see Saul Rubinek again. Kathy Baker was a nice foil for Jesse, but I wanted Molly to have a bigger role.
