Thoughts on 7th Secret

Thoughts7th Secret is an erotic drama that follows a political figures wife who gets drawn into a world of kinky underworld within the city, keeping secrets from her husband that could end up bringing down his career if they ever got out. This is a story that doesn’t seem to want to commit to everything it could have, with the consequences needing to like it could have had plenty more about them, as the position Marissa finds herself in could lead to plenty of damage around everyone in her life. By the end of the film, it will feel like the start of a series, as we could get plenty more out of the material in play here. The performances are strong with Amanda Figueroa doing well in the lead role opposite bigger names you would have expected to see in more scenes in the movie.

Final Thoughts 7th Secret is a steamy drama that doesn’t commit heavily enough to the double life.
