Storyline

Jessica has been married to her controlling husband Gary for years. She began dating him at the age of fifteen and has two kids, Maggie and Pete. After some career trouble Gary moves the family out to a New York suburb. Anyway, at first Gary seems like a sweet and loving husband, but after getting mad at some hippie neighbors he begins slapping Jessica and having fits of rage. The abuse only gets worse when she gets a job at a bakery and makes two really caring friends: her co-worker and neighbor Lee, and her boss Walter. Walter becomes more than just her boss; he notices bruises on Jessica's neck and advises her to leave Gary, but she can't; she's too afraid. Soon she starts dating Walter, and when Gary punches Pete repeatedly she realizes she has to be the voice for her two kids; she takes them to stay with Walter. Things only get worse as Gary makes a decision that could send her life crashing down. Written by GasmaskProductionsBooks

A Powerful and Moving Film
4 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent film about domestic abuse and its shattering impact on the life of a family.

Good acting saves this from a typical "Movie of the Week" fare. I would STRONGLY recommend this film. The only flaw, would be that the love-scenes seem to drag the film down a bit. But otherwise, good acting throughout.

If anyone has any information of the real case, (Were the names of the main characters, The Cochran's changed for privacy?) please post as I can not find anything about the case on line. Does anyone know when this case/trial actually happened?
