Above average TV movie
11 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

This was a surprisingly enjoyable TV movie with a good performance from the lead, Victoria Principal.

After her married lover of nine years dies, she is left with nothing, having no one to take care of her and no work prospects in her chosen field of acting.

During the next five months she struggles to find work, or another true love, meeting various new men and old flames along the way.

All this leads up to the bleaker-than-usual ending for a fictional TV movie. Enjoyable
