Good Portrayal of a Horrific Crime
18 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 1991 TV Movie is based on a true story of cold-blooded and absolutely senseless murder. It demonstrates that no matter how charmed a life you may be leading, there is nothing to protect you from the random crime that changes you and those closest to you forever. The crime itself as portrayed in this production is very disturbing--I found myself turning away from the screen during this time, especially since I knew it was all based on actual events. Richard Chamberlain heads a fine cast as the detached, very successful father who is happy to leave the emotional needs of his lovely family to his warm-hearted wife, played by the marvelous Michael Learned. The supporting cast who complete the family of 3 sons and 1 daughter are all excellent, including Doug Savant, currently of Desperate Housewives. The actor who plays the pivotal role of the son, Terry, is outstanding--I think he gives a very believable portrayal of the hell his family is thrust into because of this random, heartless crime. Richard Chamberlain is memorable as the father who initially is the successful bread winner of the household, but rather aloof from his children, who then because of the most horrific circumstances, is forced to become the emotional foundation that keeps the family from succumbing to despair. The scene near the end of the movie, with Terry, his father and siblings at the cemetery, is especially touching.
