CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com appears on “The Morning Mess” with Scott Thompson on WBGR-FM (Monroe, Wisconsin) on March 17th, reviewing “Deep Water,” featuring Ben Affleck in an adaptation of a Patricia Highsmith novel, and is streaming on HULU beginning March 18th.

Affleck is Vic, a retired software millionaire who is married to Melinda (Ana de Armas), a much younger woman who is also the mother of his daughter. Melinda is a tremendous flirt, in front of Vic, and has man friends that Vic says is part of their marriage arrangement. When one of Melinda’s friends drowns in their pool, everybody starts to point fingers – including suspicious author friend Don (Tracy Letts) – and many of those fingers are pointing at Vic.
