Starring: Mary Tyler Moore, Jean Stapleton, Robert Forster, Gabriel Olds. Written by Paul Eric Meyers from the book "The mother, The Son and The Socialite" by Adrian Havill. Directed by Arthur Allan Seidelman

The story of Sante Kimes (played brilliantly by Mary Tyler Moore), a con artist, thief and murderer, and her troubled son and partner in crime, Kenny (Gabriel Olds). Sante and Kenny Kimes were convicted of murdering Irene Silverman (Jean Stapleton) in a scheme to steal her $7 million Manhattan home. They have also been indicted in the 1998 murder of a business associate. As one judge says, Sante was: “a sociopath of unremitting malevolence.”

Sante believes she deserves whatever she wants, having struggled through a horrible childhood and a string of abusive men. She’s the type of small-time swindler who has a quick comeback for any inquiry or accusation and has deluded herself into believing her own lies.

Based on a true story. Adapted from: “The Mother, The Son, and The Socialite”.
