Quotes

Mary: When I came here I was afraid. I had run from everyone and everything I knew because I just couldn't see any other way. Then I met you. I saw how you lived your life, how you're willing to fight and even die for what you believe in - and just as willing to fight for me, who you barely knew. I felt ashamed. You have courage and dignity, and I've been a coward. What you taught me - what I've learned from you I must now find a way to teach the people in my world because if I don't that world will ...

Worth watching, if only for Belinda Bauer
15 October 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Clever, vastly underrated little ABC Circle Films production starring James Spader,(pre-Stargate; sex,lies, and videotape)Belinda Bauer in a totally believable performance,(compare to Jeff Bridges in the more highly-acclaimed "Starman")and even a young Clark Johnson (Homicide: Life on the Street.)

Special effects were low-budget but the direction,cinematography, and Gil Melle's beautiful score make this one a keeper and a film to watch over and over. Lifetime has shown this movie occasionally (though why it's always edited for length and content, I'll never know)but, other than that, I've never seen a repeat. Find it if you can; to my knowledge, it's never been released on DVD but there is a VHS version floating around Europe somewhere. Hope its not PAL.
