Academy Award-winner Jodie Foster (The Accused) and Oscar-nominee John Lithgow (The World According to Garp) weave a plot of spellbinding suspense in Mesmerized, based on the true story of an ill-fated marriage that ended with a mysterious death. 18-year-old Victoria (Foster) wanted to see the world and experience life outside of her orphanage. Oliver Thompson, a middle-aged merchant, wanted a wife and family. In an arranged marriage, Victoria joined Oliver "'til death do part." Now she stands trial for murder. Cold-blooded murderer, desperate victim, or innocent bystander? The story of Victoria Thompson captivated New Zealand in the 1880's with its chilling twists and startling secrets. Now it's going to captivate you.
