The perfect student
The Perfect Student is a 2011 American thriller movie directed by Michael Feifer and starring Natasha Henstridge, Josie Davis, Brea Grant, and Jay Pickett. It was premiered on TV in France on March 14, 2011, and released on DVD on January 17, 2012.
A student is brutally murdered on campus, and her body is thrown to the ocean. The police suspects her roommate Jordan, but Nicole Johnson, a well-respected criminology professor, understands that the police are on the wrong track, trying to frame the innocent. She begins her own investigation to prove the innocence of Jordan. But doing so is not as easy as it seems to be at first glance...
Ultimately, this “legal thriller” falls short of most. It delivers on a basic level, and is watchable. The actors, for the most part, are believable. Some decent cinematography is appreciated, though only used sparingly. Cheesy dialogue, and a bad story prevail in the piece, and keep it from becoming something more enjoyable. If one is in the mood for a similar piece, try Primal Fear (1996), Runaway Jury (2003), or Along Came a Spider (2001) instead. This movie will be relegated to afternoon viewings on cable television networks, and it will deliver what is expected of it, the bare minimum.
