Baby boomer angst
17 September 1999 | by (california) – See all my reviews

More of a true teleplay than a movie.

Annette O'Toole steals the show as Matheson's disaffected girlfriend. The rest of the cast is OK. But the handwringing over life choices gets to be too much, and the result is much too obvious. I've never seen this title on VHS or anywhere other than TV, which is just as well.
