Judith's best since she won my heart on Who's the Boss, 1 April 2004
Author: erik-225 from London, England

When this movie first began, I was a little teary-eyed to see Judith on the screen again. I thought that she looked particularly emaciated -- but I digress. The passion with which she played her character, Alice Needham, touched me in a way that I have not been touched since her breathtaking performance aside Tony Danza in "Who's the Boss".

The story of "Women in Prison" that this movie tells is at once compelling and painful; the struggles that these poor women face on a daily basis strike deep into the core of the plight of the incarcerated. I was horrified to learn of their forced sexual exploitations and immensely satisfied that Judith Light (Alice Needham) was able to destroy the needless corruption which sprang from the loins of the prison guards.

As an aside -- Is Judith a natural redhead? Because if not, KUDOS to her hairdresser. I was totally convinced.
