Fascinating woman, complex story
2 June 2003 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This Hallmark Hall of Fame production stars a captivating Kyra Sedgwick as the title character. Rose White is a Jewish woman who changes her name to appear far removed from her Polish heritage. She longs to climb the ladder of success in the large department store where she works. Visits to her Jewish father and other relatives are only on the Sabbath, across town. Years ago, her mother and sister had to remain in Poland and were subsequently sent to concentration camps. Good news arrives. The sister is alive and, at last, coming to America. When she (Amanda Plummer) enters the country, she is much changed. Rose is forced to share her apartment with a virtual stranger. Alas, the guilt each sister feels contributes to a difficult acceptance on each of their parts. Slowly, they warm to each other. Can all end well? Miss Sedgwick is at her most glamorous and delivers a fine performance. Miss Plummer brings a touching complexity to her role as the long-suffering sister. In a minor role, D.B.Sweeney appears as a love interest for Rose. Viewers will enjoy the chance to visit New York in the forties but, will be moved by the many trials and tribulations of the film's main characters. One of Hallmark's better films, Miss Rose White conveys a feeling of authenticity that fascinates while remaining intelligent, moving entertainment.
