As you will note, I'm a big fan of the late Elizabeth Montgomery.
5 January 2001 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

This movie was an excellent showcase for the dramatic acting talents of Elizabeth Montgomery. Break out the Kleenex, because it is a tear jerker, but none the less satisfying in the end. I suppose the only thing I found unrealistic, was the fact that the writers portrayed Elizabeth as someone who was semi-fit, physically, after a 20 year coma. And as we all know, anyone who is lucky enough to survive being in a coma for 20 years, would be severely incapacitated, due to atrophied muscles, etc. But that aside, I felt the intent of the movie, and the problems that she and everyone around her faced, made for a number of fascinating challenges. All in all I thought the movie was well done. And I believe it was one of the last movies that Elizabeth Montgomery herself made before cancer claimed her in real life. A great actress who will be missed.
