Clichéd, but involving pro life propaganda with some good Chapin tunes
30 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got this movie out of the library on VHS of interest mainly because Harry Chapin did the music. It has every cliché you can imagine and the writing/acting are typical at best, but the characters and scenarios still kept me intrigued.

Tuesday Weld as Lillie, who gets pregnant as a teen and spends the rest of her life doing anything she can for her daughter (Kathleen Beller), repeating the same cycle her mother did for her.

As I said before, I got this for the Chapin music and it's the best part of it. It features some new music he did just for the movie, as well as some old classics ("Woman Child", "Tanged Up Puppet" and the Chapin anthem "Circle"). He also makes a cameo appearance in the end.

5/10
