Excellent Psychological Thriller!
5 September 2004 | by (Citrus Heights, CA) – See all my reviews

Strong performances by both Kathleen Beller and Mariette Hartley made this such a compelling movie to watch, that you can't break away from it, even though you pretty much know how it's going to turn out.

Of all Mariette Hartley's movies, I think this was probably her best. Her portrayal of the conflicted stepmother was so completely credible, she should have received some sort of recognition for it.

Likewise, Kathleen Beller was utterly convincing as a teen coming to grips with the loss of her father while feeling that she's losing her mind. She was good in several other TV movies in the late 70s and early 80s, but this role was a shining character performance.

The fear, anguish and overall pathos of both characters makes this a must-see for any fan of good thriller fiction.
