An upsetting story...
16 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

about repressed memory. As another reviewer mentioned, Eileen Franklin may have recalled some moments that were not 100% true, but she did witness something horrible, and was certainly abused.

Dean Stockwell is a detective who helps her prosecute her father, for something that occurred 20 years prior. While I was never a huge fan of Shelley Long, she is believable as the victim of abuse, and does quite well in this role, portraying the character of Eileen as a confused and victimized adult. The court scenes are thankfully not overdone, and Helen Shaver is very good as the prosecuting attorney.

If you like this film you may also like "Voices Within:The Lives of Truddi Chase" another story in which Long portrays an emotionally disturbed woman with multiple personalities.
