Melissa Gilbert work well with Ms.Powers and Ms.Stapleton in Family Secrets!
15 June 2003 | by (Mamaroneck,New York,USA) – See all my reviews

In this tv movie drama.Ms.Powers is an overworked ad ex.Who is ordered by her bosses to take out from work.Both she and her daughter(Played here engaging by Ms.Melissa Gilbert)head for the home of Powers Mother(played with some maternal toughness by Maureen Stapleton).As they try to get Ms.Stapleton to move to a new home following the death of her husband.It's during this period.That Ms.Gilbert learns of the difficult relationship between her mother and her grandmother.Secrets of betrayail,mistrust and not being given any love by the elder member of the family creates extreme tensions for Ms.Powers and Ms.Stapleton.Until Ms.Gilbert decides to leave her mother and move in with her grandma.The story is predictable but the performances from these talented ladies.more than make up for the plot's flaws.Ms.Powers is wonderful as the workaholic daughter.Who doesn't get along with her mother and feels that she is hiding some dark secrets about her father.Ms.Stapleton is equally engaging as the grandmother.Who simply wants her daughter and grandaughter to forget the past and get on with their lives.And Ms.Gilbert is perfect as the daughter.Who just wants to have some normalcy in her life.Despite the minor plot."Family Secrets"is a family treasure.
