Trivia

Miss Taylor's costumes were by Edith Head, with some personal input from her as well. Mr. Allen, the choreographer, witnessed an impromptu collaboration between the two, together sketching on a piece of cardboard. Seeing Miss Head didn't need it (it then being in her head) and it was being left behind, he asked for it, having them each sign it. See more »

This teleplay was nominated for an Emmy-
16 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is a story of a professor, her secret past, and her friendship with a young man (Joseph Bottoms), to whom she rents the upstairs of her house.

If you can accept the idea of Elizabeth Taylor as a professor, this is a good little story. It turns out she had a measure of fame in her past life, and it takes Joseph Bottoms' character to bring her out of her shell.

It was nice to see Taylor in a not-over-the top role, as an ordinary middle-aged woman, and the friendship she develops with a young student, as a remedy for her loneliness and isolation. 9/10
