Farrah Fawcett shines in this compelling drama!!!!
Farrah Fawcett plays Diane Downs,a woman who shoots three of her kids in order to be free of them so she can be with a man who simply doesn't want kids. This movie is a two-part movie, Farrah keeps your attention and gives a powerful performance. The movie is based on Ann Rules book. Ryan has a small but interesting role in this film, and John Shea is awesome in this movie as district attorney Frank Joziak, who's interaction with Diane's daughter Karen is troubling and moving at the same time. Diane Downs is convicted and sent to prison where she escapes and is later caught and returned to prison. Her narcissism throughout the whole story is sad, but more pathetic.
