I Loved This Movie!
21 February 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For a TV movie, this one was very good. A woman's son dies and due to some awful circumstances, she ends up taking care of a little boy who looks alot like her dead son. I won't spoil the ending here, but the plot moves along at a nice pace and the film has a really nice ending. If you like drama, this is a nice one. I wish I could find the film on tape. Lifetime cable channel has been known to rerun it from time to time, but the film has been renamed Innocent Victim for some unknown reason. I like the original title better. This film was based on the novel "Tree of Hands" by Ruth Rendell.
