Moving On: Drowning not Waving features my favorite British actor, Richard Armitage (No surprise to anyone who has been reading my blog). Richard portrays John Mulligan who is a drug dealer real estate developer.
Ellie Morgan is played by actress Christine Tremarco.
Look at how John Mulligan is staring at Ellie. That is a look that says “I can own you if I want to.”
Did Ellie not recognize this look of a vulture eying its prey? Obviously not, or maybe Ellie just didn’t want to see it because she was too wrapped up in his good looks.
I wonder what John is thinking.
John Mulligan finally says the wrong thing and……
Never one to be deterred, John Mulligan shows up at Ellie’s doorstep waving a white peace flag in the form of a bag of fish and chips. Look at that fake smile. He looks just like a used car salesman.
John continues laying on the charm.
John is successful in putting Ellie under his spell.
Bingo! John has reeled in his prey and gave Ellie a romp in bed. Lucky actress.
After John beds down Ellie a few times, she finally confesses to her best friend Maria that the mystery man in her life is John Mulligan. Maria nearly chokes when she hears this because Maria recently ended an affair with John that she had in secret. The reason for the secrecy is because Maria is married. Maria, of course, never told Ellie about it. Maria broke off the affair with John after she found out that he makes his living selling drugs. Maria tells Ellie that John is a drug dealer but does not confess about her affair with him. Ellie is stubborn though and too far in gone in love with John so she does not believe Maria. Ellie prefers to believe that Maria is just jealous of her and continues seeing John.
Maria begs John to stop seeing Ellie and not to hurt her, but John just smiles in her face saying that NO he will not stay away from Ellie.
John is looking at Maria’s mouth way too long and he is enjoying taunting her about his relationship with Ellie.
Hmmm…how convenient. John receives a call on his cell phone just minutes before he is about to leave for the airport with Ellie.
John tells Ellie that he has to stay behind to tend to some very important business. He also tells Ellie to go ahead without him and he will join her later by taking a later plane.
The devil int the form of John Mulligan smiling.
Ellie does not want to go without John, but with a few kisses and sweet words John convinces Ellie to go on ahead.
Some women are so gullible.
Goodbye Ellie. Have a safe trip and I will see you later.
Ellie goes to visit John Mulligan in jail. Jail? How did John end up in jail? You will have to watch the movie to find out.
Good riddance John Mulligan. You are behind bars where you belong. Five stars to Richard Armitage for a great performance.
