Strange series of events

The Truth About Charlie airs on HBO on September 29 at 9 pm. The movie stars Mark Wahlberg, Thandie Newton, Tim Robbins and Joong-Hoon Park. Regina (Newton) is a woman stuck in a strange marriage with the enigmatic Charles Lambert (Dillane). When she meets Joshua Peters (Wahlberg) while vacationing in Martinique, she decides it’s time to end her marriage.
However, upon her return to Paris, there is no need to end the marriage as Charles has been murdered. In addition, their apartment and back accounts have been emptied. The problems continue to pile up when three of Charlie’s cohorts harass Regina for the money that he owed them.
Inscrutable secret agent, Lewis Bartholomew (Robbins), finds himself caught up in this strange series of events. It seems that there is more to her dead husband than meets the eye, and that she must find out the truth if she is to stay alive. But is Joshua really a friend or a foe?
