copy of The Love She Sought
24 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been trying to find a copy of The Love She Sought and have been unsuccessful. Can anyone help and let me know where I can get a copy? This movie has touched me and has stayed with me since I first saw it on TV and I would definitely like to see it again. I can remember that this movie was a topic of a lot of conversation for some time with my friends and I. It was so touching how she portrayed that her impression of her friend turned out not to be what she had thought for all that time. Angela Lansbury is such a versatile actress and I think that this is the best TV movie with her in it that I have ever seen. I have watched others, but not have left me with such a long lasting good impression. I would also like to know if any of her other movies are similar to this one because I would also like to watch it. THANK YOU!!!
