Real Life is scary, doctors aren't usually like this
27 September 2001 | by (Delaware, Ohio USA) – See all my reviews

When I saw this on Lifetime TV, I was astonished. I read the story in a magazine, and only remembered that a few minutes into the movie. Two great stars performed well in their roles, but I was a little upset to find Judd Hirsch cast (again) as a rapist. Judith Light's character seemed a little too trusting, but I still believed in the fight she led.
