First rate tv movie
22 July 2002 | by (Dublin) – See all my reviews

This movie was shown last week on Irish tv.The acting and script were outstanding.It was obviously written straight from the heart.Lee Remick wouldn't have known how to give a bad performance,but in this she really excels.As a male I found the film to be in no way man hating.Take no notice of the first reviewer. The romantic teaming of Colleen Dewhurst and Dynasty's Al Corley was certainly bizarre.He looked more like her grandson!!.I hope more people get to see this film.
