A terrific, hard-hitting drama about an abused wife who is pushed too far. Wow.
15 April 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A near-perfect script uses flashback and well-laced narrative to describe the true story of a woman who endured a monstrous husband. Without giving away the plot, just know that it's a great story. Really nails the issue. Sometimes tough to watch, but more than worth it by the end. One of those rare movies that truly moves us.
