Terrific acting, direction and score

Loosely based on the Patti Hearst saga, this all-too-true account of the times and the conflicting feelings stands well on its own merits. Masterful work by Spacek and Winkler as the well-meaning but misguided rebels. The scene where Art Carney and Spacek dance is so compelling, it always makes me cry; the music is perfectly used; and all the supporting performances are raw, truthful, and insightful. Viewed through present lenses, this may seem overdone, but having lived through those times, it is write on the money and lovingly directed. At the time creative directors were able to say in TV-movies what the film studios would not allow especially with regard to Vietnam and teen unrest -- quite the opposite of today. My score in the context of its period is 10/10.
