Wonderful TV-movie
14 August 1999 | by (Jacksonville Beach, Florida) – See all my reviews

It's sort of a scaled-down, TV version of RASHOMON--not on that level, to be sure, but quite well-done on its own standards.

Excellent performances from future man-and-wife Hal Holbrook and Dixie Carter, as well as future stars Anthony Edwards ("ER"), Sean Penn, and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
