Movie Info

New York City cop Bobby Benedetto (Anthony LaPaglia) physically and mentally abuses his wife, Frances (Mary Stuart Masterson). Because Bobby is on the police force, Frances believes it will be useless to tell the authorities about the domestic violence she must endure. Eventually, Frances and her son (Will Rothhaar) escape to Florida, where they enter into the Witness Protection Program. Unfortunately, they aren't safe for long, as Bobby is expertly trained in the art of pursuing fugitives.

Audience Reviews for Black and Blue

  • Aug 19, 2010
    Based on a novel by acclaimed writer, Anna Quindlen, Black & Blue is the story of a woman who risks everything to get her family away from her abusive husband. There's a problem though, he husband is a New York City Detective, who will stop at nothing to find them. This was originally a made for TV film, but unlike most, the producers didn't tone it down for the small screen. This movie is a terrific example of what it's like to suffer from the horrors of domestic abuse. Mary Stuart Masterson is nothing short of brilliant, in a role that should have made her career. I'd go as far to say that it is the single best performance I've ever seen in a made for TV movie. Young Will Rothhaar was also great, leading to bigger and better roles in the future. This film was more than just entertaining, but important for every person in a similar situation to see and learn from.
