The Honeymoon Killers
Martha Beck (Shirley Stoler) is sullen, overweight, and heartbreakingly alone. Desperate for affection, she joins Aunt Carrie's Friendship Club and strikes up a correspondence with Ray Fernandez (Tony Lo Bianco), a suave, charismatic smooth talker who could be the man of her dreams-or a wicked con artist bound for trouble. Based on a true story and filmed in documentary-style black and white, THE HONEYMOON KILLERS is a stark portrayal of the desperate lengths to which a lonely heart will go to find true love, from brutally immoral killings, to a passion that transcends all bounds.
