She reinvents herself with a new wardrobe and a new look. Then she sets out to meet Glenn. She succeeds and Glenn Stevens' life begins to unravel. Written by Anonymous

This is good
7 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

Good TV movie about a mousy young woman who takes her love for her favourite soap opera star one step too far. It has all the usual clichés, but it's boosted by the energetic, and psychotic, performance of Yvette Mimieux. I just loved her in this movie.

My rating: 7/10
