Cruel But Necessary Photos

Movie Info

When a vacation video reveals that her husband is having a secret affair, the family camcorder becomes a weapon of truth for a married suburban housewife. Betty (Wendel Meldrum) was poring over her family vacation video when she realized that a telephone conversation captured on the tape revealed her husband's infidelity. Later, as Betty makes the transformation from typical housewife to single mother, the camera becomes her constant companion. Videotaping everything from gynecological exams to blind dates, Betty begins to realize the importance of editing her work as her archives become increasingly unruly. But while Betty's new obsession may seem strange to her family and friends, it doesn't take long to realize that there's no denying the truth when it's captured on camera.
