Yet another of the good TV movies, that surprise
3 August 2002 | by (Miami, USA) – See all my reviews

Jane Alexander is most of this movie, but all the moviemaking techniques are respectable or better here and Frederick Forrest in a small role is pretty much fine, too. There's also a fat friend (of Jane's) who keeps appearing (Walter Olkewicz?): he also does quite a good job in a not very demanding role.

The script is not always - he says nicely - good, but it often is. And Jane Alexander is more than able to make the best of anything around.

Among other examples of her top of the list acting, it's quite amazing to me how well she showed (physically) a tough, quite masculine (sometimes) character. She got a walk together for the film that has little or no trace of the standard feminine (wherein, as a famous feminist once said, women imitate being feminine!). (Marilyn Monroe being the biggest example?)

And she plays old and washed up beautifully at the end of the film.

A movie that's well worth watching, and maybe even buying?, if you can find a good used version.
