Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
And now for something completely different.
Well, all right, Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky hedges. Not completely different, but sort of different.
That’s because it is the Lifetime network movie “The 19th Wife” and it ventures into places man has seldom gone before. Neither, Sokolsky says, has woman.
In this case it is a Mormon community where one of its more despicable residents is killed. And when the murderer is not caught the victim’s wife claims to have killed him.
Sokolsky says the reasons behind that involve everything from crime and punishment to issue of deep religious faith and haw thoroughly they should be explored.
