Storyline

Two young womens lives are changed forever in one moment. A strikingly beautiful and wealthy woman is hit by a truck and is all smashed up and nearly killed. At nearly the same time, a very plain looking lower middle class woman simply faints and suffers brain death. The beautiful womans brain is fine, so, doctors merely transplant her brain into plain Jane. Problems ensue when plain Janes husband continues to believe she is still his wife. She has no memory of him, and goes to live with the beautiful womans husband. She doesn't mix well with her new socialite friends and family. Mirrors are emotional battlefields as well.

One of my favorite movies.
10 January 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The first time I saw this movie on TV I loved it. I love Mare Winningham and think she was perfect for this part. I tried to tape it for future viewing when it ran again but I missed the first crucial 10 minutes. I would love to see it again. I love modern sci-fi type movies. Or was it really sci-fi?
