(mbc.net) Chris and Lisa Mattson (Patrick Wilson and Kerry Washington) are a recently married couple who have just purchased their first home.  The neighborhood is presumably secure, especially since a police officer lives next door.

Officer Abel Turner (Samuel L. Jackson) is unwelcoming to his new neighbors though, and hellbent to scare the Mattsons away because they are an interracial couple.  When Abel oversees the pair making love in their swimming pool, he transforms his displeasure into physical rage.

Lakeview Terraceearned $42 million internationally plus $20 million in DVD sales, tripling its budget and deeming the film a commercial success.  The picture was nominated for a BET Award.
