Dominique Dunne leads a fine cast
24 April 2010 | by (Redondo Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

This movie is a hidden treasure, from the golden age of made-for-TV fare. A banner cast, well scripted drama with touching emotion, skillful direction, topical story; this feature has all of these.

Dominique Dunne, in the best performance of her promising but tragically short career, plays a young bride-to-be, having second thoughts on the eve of her wedding. Much of the story is told in flashback: the divorce of her parents when she was a child, which she is terrified may be repeated in her own marriage. Excellent performances by Dunne, Valerie Harper and Dennis Weaver (as her parents), and Ally Sheedy as the younger sister. There is an emotionally charged father/daughter exchange between Weaver and Dunne that is wonderfully done.

A showcase of several great actors; and a legacy of a talented actress who sadly died so young.
