And Lynn Redgrave excels in this suspenseful TV mini-series. It is one of her finest roles.
The horror mounts as she sinks into a terror not of her creation but rather instigated by the criminals as a reaction to a story she is investigating in her job as a TV reporter. The supporting cast is outstanding also.
The tension builds and builds in this one, reminiscent of another great mini - Mother Love. In her search for the truth, Maggie, played with a believable Irish accent by Lynn, puts her life and love on hold. Terrific.
Her performance is completely believable and captivating. I have watched it quite a few times since it was first released.
10 out of 10.
