Synopsis by Sandra Bencic
Tribute is one of four made-for-TV movies adapted from Nora Roberts' romance novels for the Lifetime channel in 2009 (along with Northern Lights, High Noon, and Midnight Bayou). Brittany Murphy stars as Cilla McGowan, a former child star rebuilding a Virginia farmhouse owned by her actress grandmother, who died under mysterious circumstances. As she begins to investigate the case with the help of her hunky next-door neighbor, Ford Sawyer (Jason Lewis), Cilla encounters the ire of the local townsfolk -- as well as some family secrets that may put her own life in danger. This romantic thriller features a supporting turn from Tippi Hedren (The Birds).
