Quotes

Sharon: [after Pauleen moved away to Nora's] We should never have given her an ultimatum.

The true story of Colleen Applegate/Shauna Grant
1 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

This biopic shows us the tragic story of Colleen Applegate, who at a very young age moved to Hollywood from the midwest and became porn star Shauna Grant. Though the names have been changed, it is her story. The film is well-acted, especially by Melinda Dillon, who plays the girl's mother. I recommend this TV movie to anyone who enjoys a tragic real life story. I give this an 8 out of 10.
