To Die For (1995)
All she wanted was a little attention
She'll do anything to get what she wants ...ANYTHING



Nicole plays Suzanne Stone Maretto

To Die For tells the story of ambitious small-town woman Suzanne Stone. Suzanne isn't content with just being a wife to her adring husband Larry, she wants to be on TV - more than anything. After giving a talk at a local school, Suzanne befriends three teenagers and seduces them, making them idolise her, and do anything for her. Suzanne sets about trying to get her 'big break' into television, and convinces the local TV Station to give her a job as a weather reporter. However, when Larry asks her to slow down her career, she persuades Jimmy and Russell to kill him. Thinking she can't be linked to the murder, Suzanne laps up the attention surrounding Larry's death. But there's a surprise in store for the ever-ambitious Suzanne...
