This is a very engrossing TV movie, well worth watching. The performances are uniformly good. This movie also contains, in my opinion, one of the best scenes ever seen on television. Not to give anything away, I'll just say watch when the girl's parents go to bed in her house! Absolutely sensational.
It's interesting that actors who used to be known as "good guys" like Gregory Harrison and Michael Ontkean (who is one of the stars of this film) go on in the next part of their careers to play sleazes. Guess it's their good looks, but Ontkean is very good as the husband.
I also liked the Italian background present in the film - and the grandfather's reaction to Ontkean!
