The Next Three Days
When Lara Brennan (Elizabeth Banks) met her husband (Russell Crowe) and in-laws for dinner after a particularly difficult day at work, she seized the opportunity to vent about how much she disliked her boss (Leslie Merrill). She was clearly still visibly agitated over an argument the two had earlier during which she had referred to Elizabeth as a “useless cow.”
So, when the woman’s lifeless body was found bludgeoned to death in their office building’s parking lot later that evening, it didn’t take the police long to finger the disgruntled employee as a person of interest who might have gone postal. And Lara subsequently became the prime suspect and arrested as soon as the cops found her fingerprints on the murder weapon, as well as traces of the victim’s blood on the coat she had worn to the restaurant that night.
