Suspenseful TV mini series
24 May 2004 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

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.
