I am not a very big watcher of the Lifetime network, but the other night I caught this movie on and was instantly hooked. I was born in a town very similar to the one in which the characters are engulfed and I found the performances and direction to be frighteningly accurate. I had never heard of this movie and I was so impressed that Christian Slater could give such a believable performance. I moved to Los Angeles California after high school and now I live in Washington, D.C. I studied film and theatre so I lost my small southern town dialect, but movies that can truly capture the essence of the the lifestyle that these people must endure never fails to amaze me. I do not see it very often is a film, but "Desperate for Love" accomplished it magnificently.
