Pretty good!!

Pretty good Lifetime movie. Lesley Ann Warren is Carol. A woman who juggles motherhood and a career and a husband who's always on the go with business trips, etc.. they have two daughters Jill aged 17 and Wendy, 12. While Jill deals with her own world into becoming independent and an adult, Wendy seems to be more closer to her Carol. One day Carol realizes she needs to stay late at work so she calls Jill up at work to pick up Wendy after school. Jill is late in picking her up and this worries Wendy who heads back into the school building a little after 5pm to call her mother. Little does Wendy know, there is a sick perverted janitor, Frank, still inside who's got his eye on Wendy and before Wendy can call her mother, he beats then rapes her leaving her for dead.

Wendy is in the hospital clinging for life while Frank is caught and while in court Frank's quick witted attorney along with his lying mother take him off the hook. There is not enough evidence and Frank is free from all charges and is a free man. Carol is outraged at what is happening and decides to take the law into her own hands. Right there in the court room, she pulls a gun out of her purse and shoots and kills Frank. Now Carol must face with the possibility of never seeing Wendy again. Wendy awakes from her coma and is getting better when she finds out her mother is in court for killing her rapist.

The rest of the story is throughly acted and avoids being too sappy. In the end, Carol gets less time in prison(I believe she ends up getting like 2 or 3 years) and Frank's mother fesses up to lying under oath. Wendy heads back to school and Jill and her Mother along with Wendy become closer and stronger. I liked it and it was great to see Lesley Ann Warren in yet another movie she so greatly manages.

Excellent Movie!

I loved this movie and the actors and actresses in it. My favorite is Annette O'Toole. Although, you may think she is a jerk in the beginning because she gets the charges against Frank Warden the rapist dropped, she really is a cool character. I also really like Carol Sanders the mother, Lesley Ann Warren's character. I think she is a supermom. Iam not saying that killing is okay, because it certainly is not, there is no justification in killing someone. However, that man was a monster and his mother was an asshole. She is a moron for lying under oath just to protect her son. Kudos to cast, crew and filmmakers. Two Thumbs Way Up!

Another engaging plot?

Not too bad drama about mother finding justice for her youngest daughter. What more to say about the plot? it's pretty much summarised in the Plot outline above. Lesley Warren puts up a gd act, and so does annette o'toole.
