Tuesday Weld in one of her best roles!
18 July 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie really shows off the talents of Tuesday Weld. She plays a mother who's children are murdered by an unknown assailant. While the police can't figure out who did it, all of Tuesday's neighbors jump on the "Character Assassination" bandwagon and accuse her of the crime simply because they don't like her. Apparently, the homely housewives are jealous of her because she wears mini-skirts, wigs of all colors and styles and has many boyfriends. According to these pea-brained, white trash apartment dwellers, Tuesday is guilty because she's a tramp! Interesting story about how gossip and rumor can really make a bad situation worse. The police aren't much better, especially Ron Liebman who is especially nasty when confronting Tuesday about her past. This cop is really on a high moral soapbox and we the audience really detest this guy. Every thing Tuesday tried to do for her kids is turned around and used against her. Tuesday Weld should have won an emmy for this role, she plays it with such a diverse characterization. This woman is all flash on the outside but quite a different person when she's alone. The scene in the jail where we get to see her without her wig and makeup was pretty brave (Several years before Farrah Faucett went sans makeup for the Burning Bed). All in all, it's a good movie but it leaves a lingering depression and shows what can happen when jealous, bitter people start a hate campaign against a person who's guilt is left up in the air for the entire movie.
