The Title Says it All
10 October 2000 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent movie that held my attention the entire 4 hours it was on TV. What makes it more interesting is to know that it's based on a true story. It all starts when 14 year old Cinnamon shoots and kills her stepmother and then tries to kill herself. The story unfolds from there into a web of lies, deception, and seduction. I don't want to give too much away, so I'll just say that if you're into the kind of movies shown on Lifetime TV, check your TV Guide or run to your video store - this is definitely one worth watching.
