An American Affair is a 1997 Canadian thriller film, written by Judd Laurence and Arshad Shah and directed by Sebastian Shah. It stars Corbin Bernsen, Jayne Heitmeyer Maryam d'Abo and Robert Vaughn.

For Sebastian Shah, who did cinematography work a decade earlier, this remained the only excursion into directing.


Sam Brady is a politically ambitious district attorney who has a rivalry with a federal senator and frames his son as drug dealer. He falls in love with two women – Barbara and Genevieve – who are close friends with each other. Genevieve becomes pregnant after having sex with him and he secretly marries her; shortly after she loses the baby. Being caught by Genevieve in the act of having sex with Barbara, he accidentally kills his wife in the ensuing argument, and buries, with Barbara assistance, Genevieve's body on a downtown construction site. In the end, it turns out Genevieve is still alive and was conspiring with Barbara and the senator.
