Two very different kinds of family melodramas are featured in this week's episode. First is actor James D'Arcy's directing/screenwriting debut, the Liam Neeson-starring Made in Italy, about a roguish artist, his estranged son, and the dilapidated villa in Italy they try to sell together. The other film this week is about a roguish salesman who gets involved in some family drama of his own when he tries to help a woman kill her husband for the insurance money. The "Summer of Darkness" series on film noir continues with one of the most famous noirs ever made, Double Indemnity!
