Actress and gay rights activist Rose McGowan is still glowing over the announcement that the U.S. military policy “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” – put into place by the Clinton administration in 1993 – was repealed in July, allowing openly homosexual men and women to serve in the armed forces.

“It’s amazing, and I think primarily how it’s been reacted [to] within the troops has been more inspirational than anything,” she told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column at amfAR’s Inspiration Gala Los Angeles to benefit the Foundation’s AIDS research programs. “My brother flies F16’s in the Air Force, and for him, it’s been a non-issue this entire time, and for most military people I know it’s the same. It’s us out here in the public that has a problem with it, which I think is a pity. Just like anything, it’s new and uncomfortable for them at first, and then it’s normal.”

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.

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.

'The Pastor's Wife' News & Rumors
Article written on July 17, 2011 by Riikkae-mail

McGowaniacs have been speculating over Rose’s next project after she tweeted that she was working in Vancouver, BC and posted a photo of herself wearing a wedding dress earlier this month. Now details have emerged that McGowan is currently filming a TV movie titled The Pastor’s Wife, in which Rose plays a real-life woman named Mary Winkler. The real Winkler was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in the 2006 shooting death of her husband, Matthew Winkler, the pulpit minister at the Fourth Street Church of Christ in the small town of Selmer, Tennessee. Michael Shanks (Stargate SG-1) plays Matthew Winkler in the movie. Says Shanks:

“Doing a TV movie with Rose McGowan (Conan the Barbarian, Charmed) called The Pastor’s Wife. Based on a book, true life story etc.. I play pastor Matthew Winkler. Rose will play my character’s wife, Mary Winkler. If you read about the story, the synopsis becomes self evident.”

The film began production on July 11, based out of 1950 Franklin Street Vancouver, home of Front Street Pictures.

Sounds like an intriguing project! Many thanks to maxpower03 for the detective work. Further details on the case and the real Mary Winkler are available on Wikipedia.
