A matter of INjustice
26 June 2005 | by (Odense, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This short series depict what is a struggle for two parents who lost their son. An the makers of this series, tries all they can, to emphasise big sympathy for the parents, and particularly the mother, Mary Brown, played by Patty Duke. But that simply didn't work for me.

I found Patty Duke's to be so mean, that even super villains would have a hard time to reach her level. In that respect, it is impossible, to be anything but horrible. The problem with these movies, are that they only work, as long as the viewer is exactly in view with the opinion of the writer and/or director, as soon as the viewer merely questions the biased patriotic viewpoint expressed here, then it falls flat.

I can't understand the huge support there is for Mary Brown. During the film, she ruins the life of her granddaughter and the granddaughter's mother, by kidnapping the granddaughter. She is sop convinced of who is guilty of what, that she takes law into her own hands, and commits great cruelty towards the granddaughter's mother, without any proofs. And also she is mean and cruel to any one, in her attempt to get all things, her mean way. A true deranged fanatic. So, in all, in the scenes, where people had a hard time to keep the eyes dry, because it was so beautiful, I had a hard time not to vomit.

The granddaughter's mother, Dusty, who suffered during the entire series, is apparently more evil than the devil, according to the creators of the show. To me, Dusty is the hero of the series, her and her daughter, those two living a happy life together, would be beautiful to me. And the director, when filming the "oh-so-happy" scenes, after the Mary Brown conducted kidnapping, fails to realise, what evil it is, to rob a young of her mother. But this show seems to have nothing to do with reality or truth, even the word "justice" in the title, couldn't have been used more incorrectly.

It's just a manipulative little show, and very horrible, horrible, horrible!
