Surprisingly Effective Docudrama!
24 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Art Carney and Jane Wyatt are perfectly cast as the upscale Denver parents of Katherine Alman, a renegade revolutionary in the 1960s. She had a life of privilege but gave it all up to make the world a better place. In this film, she is played by the wonderful Sissy Spacek. Henry Winkler plays her boyfriend who is equally liberal in the film. Julie Kavner plays her college friend. There are others in the film. It's an okay film even though I had technical difficulties towards the end which I think left us hanging for more. According to the internet, it's loosely based on the life of Diana Oughton. Anyway, the film goes back and forth over Katherine's life in a beautiful estate in Denver, Colorado where she was raised with a horse, tennis court, and pool by loving and supportive parents to her college days. After college, she went to Peru where she taught to children and adults but she seen as a threat to the system. She returns to the United States where she teaches African American children in the South where she meets Henry Winkler's character. The movie returns to how she must conduct a final mission. It's chilling but the end is cut short. We never really know what her final mission is but we know who she was.
