"No Good Deed" starring Taraji P. Henson and Idris Elba opens in theaters Friday, September 12, 2014. This thriller calls to attention the familiar adages "no good deed goes unpunished" and "all that glitters is not gold" as Taraji P. Henson portrays a wife and mother who lets a handsome and charming stranger (played by Idris Elba) into her house, claiming to have car trouble, but he is actually an escaped convict who invades her home and terrorizes her family.
