Great movie with good actors
26 April 2003 | by (Mannheim, Germany) – See all my reviews

I really love this one. The story is about the reunion of an adopted daughter (Susan) and her biological mother (Edie). All seems fine and much too perfect when they get closer but Edie gets jealous of everyone who is near Susan. There is the babysitter and house-girl, Susan's son, her husband and the parents who adopted her. Nobody knows at this time that Edie spent several years in a mental hospital and prison for murder. So you can imagine what will happen... Well, I didn't like the ending very much, it was too cheesy and looked a bit cheap done, the only bad thing in "Hush little baby".

Diane Ladd gives a GREAT performance as Edie Landers. She is so believable and also when she tries to come on to Susan's husband Martin (Geraint Wyn Davies). Diane Ladd can be so sexy :-) And she is so perfect playing this mental disturbed character.

Wendel Meldrum needed a while to give a good performance. She acts a bit shy and helpless at the beginning but then turns out very good. The storyline between mother and daughter is played very believable.

Not to forget Illya Woloshyn who played the son Dylan. This guy is really cute for his age and will turn out very good looking. This movies was shot 10 years ago and I wonder how he looks today. His acting was very good and he should do more movies or even TV series. His talent should be pushed !

Ingrid Veninger is acting a bit bored and seems not to be that comfortable with her part.

Enjoy "Hush little baby" - you will like it. I'll give it a 10 out of 10 which I don't give very often :-)
