Movie Info

American-born French film director Bob Swaim directed this sordid tale of greed, deception, machinations and murder. The darkly beautiful Meg Tilly stars as Olivia Lawrence, member of the Hamptons social elite and heiress to a vast fortune, who becomes attracted to dangerous newcomer Tim Whalen (Rob Lowe). She unwittingly falls into his web of deceit, as he and her stepfather (John Glover) plot her murder in order to gain the $3,000,000 in her trust fund. Inspired in plot by the film noir

A tense, well-performed erotic thriller....Lowe's at the top of his game

annoyingly lame

Shadows on the Wall

Exposes a society riven by class warfare.

Filme que poderia ser interessante perde-se em função das reviravoltas forçadas do roteiro e da péssima atuação de Tilly.

Cinema em Cena

A top-notch thriller with genuine surprises and a great, affluent atmosphere.

Good fun, if you're in to the pulpy, trashy, confusingly plotted mystery flicks.

July 25, 2002

Tries to desperately cloak itself so its viewers don't realize how very little worthwhile material is actually present.

Audience Reviews for Masquerade

I like Meg Tilly in this movie. She plays her part with the right touch of innocence and entitlement

Excellent thriller with a brilliant plot. Rob's character schemes his way into marrying a rich heiress. But doesn't have the heart to kill her for her money. Great cast. Rob is hot!

Overblown variation on Hitchcock's Suspicion with ROb Lowe playing the devious but attraction husband who may be after heiress Meg Tilly's money. Some new plot twists are introduced, but unfortunately these don't save Masquerade from playing a lot like TV's Dallas.
