Two Lifetime movies based on true events explore the rags-to-riches lives of women on the edge. In Widow on the Hill
, Natasha Henstridge (Species
) stars as a nurse who cares for a dying woman, marries the rich widower (James Brolin)... and ultimately faces charges of poisoning him. Did she take a shortcut on her scandalous road from rags to riches? In Lies My Mother Told Me
, Joely Richardson (Nip/Tuck
) plays a con artist who changes identities faster than most women change hair color. Going on the lam with her daughter (Hayden Panettiere of Ice Princess
), she scams her way into a prosperous marriage and, when that union sours, pulls off a murder scheme that may be her very last con.
