above average performances for all involved, especially G.D. Spradlin
13 January 2000 | by (Oviedo Florida) – See all my reviews

As usual, Hallmark Hall of Fame has done an outstanding job of presenting the factual events of the times. Our world is not always a pleasant place, but as these events show, truth and right generally prevail. I like the fact that this experience was an education for all involved, especially John Lithgow's character.
