Angela Lansbury...
15 November 2003 | by (Illinois, USA) – See all my reviews

The only reason I ever watched this movie was because Angela Lansbury portrays the main character. I agree with a lot of what's been said so far, too. The movie wasn't a particularly grabbing movie, and it really depressed me with unanswered questions. Ms. Lansbury was brilliant, as usual, and I thought the actors did a great job with their characters, even if there wasn't much to work with. I've seen worse movies, and I've seen better movies. This movie would be worth watching at least once if you're an Angela Lansbury fan. If for nothing else to see how well she plays emotional scenes that she didn't really get to do in Murder, She Wrote. But, like I said, that's really the only reason I watched it, and I haven't watched it since, so apparently even Angela Lansbury, wonderful as she is, wasn't enough to make me want to watch it again.
