Interesting drama made by it's strong performances.
4 July 2005 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

To be honest I didn't have any plans to watch this movie but as it aired on WB TV after "Friends" and I had nothing else to do, well I gave it a try.

To my surprise, the movie gets your attention pretty soon with the raping scene that is the most important moment in the movie. The scene is well directed, I mean, it's not gross, and not THAT hard to watch. Soon after that scene the movie gets very interesting by mixing the legal difficulties and Lila's obsession to find the aggressor of her daughter.

When I was getting annoyed with Meredith Baxter character's obsession, it's explained why she's so desperate (even more than Debbie).

When the movie gets repetitive (when Lila and Debbie think they've finally caught the raper) it's justified with a couple of scenes involving Lila's new marriage, Debbie's drinking problem, and some legal issues.

The acting is top notch with well known actors like t.v. favorite Meredith Baxter, horror cult icon Ken Foree, and the beautiful and impressive talented Carrie Hamilton (R.I.P.).

"A Mother's Justice" is a decent movie specially made for t.v. Watch it if you have the chance, believe me, it's an interesting drama that will get your attention.
