It is the fall of 1957. The Whitakers, the very picture of a suburban family, make their home in Hartford, Connecticut. Their daily existences are characterized by carefully observed family etiquette, social events, and an overall desire to keep up with the Joneses. Cathy Whitaker (Julianne Moore) is the homemaker, wife and mother. Frank Whitaker (Dennis Quaid) is the breadwinner, husband and father. They have two pre-teen children, a boy and a girl. As the story unfolds before us, Cathy's pristine world is transformed. Her interactions with her gardener, Raymond Deagan (Dennis Haysbert); her best friend, Eleanor Fine (Patricia Clarkson); and her maid, Sybil (Viola Davis), reflect the upheavals in her life. Cathy is faced with choices that spur gossip within the community and change several lives forever.

A housewife faces a marital crisis and mounting racial tensions in the outside world in this pastiche of classic 1950s Hollywood melodrama.
After signing paperwork ordering a violent husband to vacate his home, beleaguered divorce-court judge Chris Manning (LOREN DEAN) disappears. Due to the nature of Chris' work, Martin and Vivian have plenty of suspects to choose from, but investigating the extremely private judge's personal life leads them to a few more people who could have wanted him dead. He might have been romantically involved with a woman from one of his cases, and he was also photographed hiring a prostitute. But when evidence surfaces that Chris was involved in something much more malicious, the detectives wonder if he purposely went missing.
