Surprisingly good. Baxter excels.
15 May 2000 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Meredith Baxter portrays the mentally challenged Winnie in what is a completely convincing, very moving, subtle performance. It's well written, well-directed, well-acted. There are a few bumps and cloying moments, but very few considering the subject matter and that it was made for TV. Fell upon it by accident, and was literally drawn in.
