Above Suspicion is a 1995 American erotic thriller-drama film starring Christopher Reeve, Joe Mantegna and Kim Cattrall. The screenplay was written by William H. Macy, who also has a small role in the film. It premiered on HBO on May 21, 1995.

In the film, Reeve plays a paralyzed cop who plots to murder his wife.

This was the last role Christopher Reeve played before he was paralyzed on May 27, 1995 from a horse race, which left him with a spinal cord injury, turning him into a quadriplegic.


Christopher Reeve stars as a paralyzed police officer who plots to murder his unfaithful wife (Kim Cattrall) and her lover (Edward Kerr). The latter is both his brother and also a police officer.


Production and associated events[edit]

The film was shot in North Carolina.

Six days after the film premiered, Reeve had an accident while horseback riding. He was seriously injured in the fall, resulting in his becoming paralyzed. He lived as a quadriplegic for the remainder of his years.
