I’m kind of at this strange crossroads in my life. I’m trying to figure out where I want to be. And I love Los Angeles in the sense that I love my friends there and I love my life there, but the business 24-7 just grinds on you. There’s no escape for you. I notice that my self-esteem and my general sense of well-being is much higher when I’m not there, and it’s sort of sad to live your life somewhere that makes you sad.

'The Pastor's Wife'
Article written on November 4, 2011 by Mycahe-mail

From the pre-opening credit moment when authorities roll out a shrouded body as concerned neighbors look on, it’s clear The Pastor’s Wife is a Lifetime movie like momma used to make ‘em: Fact-based, trashy and featuring an imperiled young woman. Still, this is an eminently watchable take on the old formula, anchored by Rose McGowan, whose pained expressions each time someone calls her handsome husband a treasure pretty much speak volumes. Mostly, it’s a reminder of what amounts to TV movie law: Slap your wife around in the Deep South, and someone’s gonna wind up on Nancy Grace.

Promoted from a berth on Lifetime‘s movie channel to the flagship network, the pic stars McGowan as Mary Winkler, the mother of three who shook up her Tennessee town in 2006 by shooting husband Matthew (Michael Shanks), the popular local pastor, in their bedroom.

'The Tell-Tale Heart' Articles

With its rich stock of midnight drearies — to say nothing of its black cats and purloined miscellany — New Orleans at any time of year feels like a custom-made setting for an Edgar Allan Poe story.

At Halloween time, however, it feels like a match made in — well, made somewhere. Which explains just about everything you need to know about the tone of the indie production of Poe’s Tell-Tale Heart that crept quietly into town almost two weeks ago and which will continue shooting through Nov. 10.

For star Rose McGowan (Charmed, Grindhouse) that kind of instant atmosphere is an actor’s dream. “Basically, if I could liken this movie to anything,” McGowan said, “it would be a dark moonlit night, (seen) through the Spanish moss.”

In other words, although Poe’s original Gothic tale doesn’t specify a location, the specter of New Orleans can’t help but float in and out of writer-director John La Tier’s feature-length adaptation. In fact, La Tier, who moved to an apartment near the Algiers ferry during the script’s early development, couldn’t resist but to incorporate the city’s textures into his film.

We had the privilege of getting to review Rose McGowan’s next film, The Pastor’s Wife, ahead of it’s debut next Saturday, November 5, at 8 pm ET/PT on Lifetime. Read on for Riikka’s take on the film and Rose’s performance as Mary Winkler – and be sure to tune in next week to watch it yourself!

Based on a true story that made national headlines, The Pastor’s Wife centers on the 2006 death of Matthew Winkler, a beloved minister and community leader who was mysteriously shot and killed in his home. During their investigation, the authorities soon zero in on Matthew’s wife, Mary, as the crime’s prime suspect.

But why would Mary, a dutiful preacher’s wife and young mother of three girls, kill her husband? During her trial, shocking secrets about her relationship with Matthew are exposed, answering the disturbing questions many are asking about what really went on behind the closed doors of this “perfect family.”

Based on the non-fiction book by Dianne Fanning, The Pastor’s Wife is produced by Preacher Road Productions Ltd. and Front Street Pictures, with Gerald W. Abrams, Mike Moran, Juliet Smith and Harvey Kahn executive producing. Norma Bailey directs a screenplay written by Robert L. Freedman.

Ask Rose McGowan what she liked about any of her characters, and the word “strong” is bound to come up at least once. The Pastor’s Wife showcases a completely different side of the actress. Here she is Mary Winkler, the wife of Matthew Winkler, a beloved minister and community leader, and mother of three. Mary, unlike Amy Blue, Courtney Shayne, Cherry Darling and many of the characters McGowan is best known for, is soft-spoken, timid and even invisible to those around her. At first sight she appears as to be the antithesis of a quintessential McGowan character. However, as the title of the movie implies, The Pastor’s Wife puts the actress and her character front and center of the story, which allows Rose to act out a wide range of intense emotions.
