Trivia

The telephone number to Austin's office is 693-0550. We can see Sarah press these digits on her bedroom telephone when she's trying to call Austin while he's at work one afternoon. See more »

Goofs

In the opening of the movie, when Sarah is chasing her mother who is running toward the ocean, there are sweeping tracks on the empty sandy beach. These tracks were left by the camera crew's dolly during earlier rehearsals, when they were attempting to catch the best shots of the characters running across the beach. See more »

Confusing conclusion.
25 February 2001 | by (Kaiserslautern, Germany) – See all my reviews

Initially interesting movie with a plot that held promise. Sela Ward's performance was better than what audiences have come to expect in television movies. The build up of suspense started with increasing expectancy. I felt that the ending was anti-climatic and sputtered into confusion. I give 3 stars out of 10.
