Movie: Out Of Time (2003)
For most of Out of Time, Ann is presumed to be a harmless woman trapped in a loveless marriage to her abusive husband Chris (Dean Cain) while she secretly sees Chief of Police Matt Whitlock (Denzel Washington). And then she's presumed dead when she and Chris' house goes up in flames, along with a near half-million dollars in confiscated drug money that Matt loaned her in desperation. While Matt investigates the missing money and her alleged death, Ann Merai teaches him and Chris a lesson in assumptions: It really just makes asses out of them, not her.
