An excellent performance from the Queen of TV Movies....
22 February 2004 | by (australia) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of my faves. Although, there was a mixed reviews when the movie was shown years ago, I believe that this is one of Smith best tv movies to date. Bugger me, if I'm wrong, but I think, this a wonderfully acted and well executed drama/thriller.

Although, the ending, I must say, is like your typical soap opera, as a whole, this one is nail biter.

Jaclyn Smith, inspite of other's negative re-action, is indeed delivers one of her best performances. The rape scene was done in good taste without over-reacting and the interogation scene in the police department is an excellent piece for Smith.

It's a pity because Smith is so beautiful on screen and that's why some people cannot take the fact that she's a credible actress, too.
