Above-average made-for-TV Hallmark flick
10 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Blind Spot' tells the story of a Congresswoman (Nell Harrington played by JoAnne Woodward) running for Senate whose world is shattered when her son-in-law dies in a tragic car accident. This devastating event leads to revelation after revelation, including the fact that the accident was related to Charlie's drug abuse and use of cocaine by Nell's pregnant daughter, Phoebe (Laura Linney).

The film chronicles the aftermath of the accident and the effects it has on Nell, her husband, Phoebe, and ultimately Phoebe's child. It is a hard-hitting drama about the devastating consequences illicit drug use has on the addict, the family, an unborn child and portrays the struggling relationships between Nell, her husband, and Phoebe.

In addition to its amount of substance, the thing that sets this movie above other made-for-TV flicks is its splendid acting. Woodward portrays the struggling mother in a convincing, emotional fashion. The supporting cast does a fine job as well. But its Linney who really shines here. She turns in a fantastic performance, portraying a range of emotions (guilt, desperation, anger, hate, remorse). I believe this movie helped shape Linney's career, since it was the first time anyone really got to see her ACT on film.

'Blind Spot' is definitely worth seeing.
