Like Mother, Like Son: The Strange Story of Sante and Kenny Kimes 2001 DVD Color Approx. 90 Min. (Region One - Playable in North America - The US, Canada, Mexico, etc.)
Starring: Mary Tyler Moore, Jean Stapleton, Robert Forster, Gabriel Olds.
The story of Sante Kimes (played brilliantly by Mary Tyler Moore), a con artist, thief and murderer, and her troubled son and partner in crime, Kenny (Gabriel Olds). Sante and Kenny Kimes were convicted of murdering Irene Silverman (Jean Stapleton) in a scheme to steal her $7 million Manhattan home. They have also been indicted in the 1998 murder of a business associate. As one judge says, Sante was: “a sociopath of unremitting malevolence.”
Sante believes she deserves whatever she wants, having struggled through a horrible childhood and a string of abusive men. She’s the type of small-time swindler who has a quick comeback for any inquiry or accusation and has deluded herself into believing her own lies.
Based on a true story. Adapted from: “The Mother, The Son, and The Socialite”.
