Still Affective
14 July 2005 | by (Chicago, IL USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this TV movie when I was very young and it left a lasting impression on me. I remember the moment when a young girl is struck by a drunk driver as extremely graphic. In re-watching it recently, it's proof the mind is capable of creating its own scenarios. While it's not nearly as gory as I recall, it indeed still remains powerful, especially when the girl's mother (Mariette Hartley) learns of her daughters death. A convincing portrait of the pain a family endures following the violent death of a loved one. A film which should still be viewed by children and soon-to-be drivers of the horrible consequences which could result from such a careless act.
