Not bad for a Lifetime movie....asks some provoking questions
Cynthia Gibb is a waitress at a cafeteria. Her life seems repressed and alienating. She has no money, and her father (well-portrayed as a cantankerous and stern minister).
Basically, Gibb walks home at work late at night, she can't afford a car. She is suddenly attacked from behind, is shocked, and couldn't identify the culprit. She is very good in this movie, underplaying the emotions and histrionics. Rape usually causes shock and trauma.
Richard Grieco enters the scene as a well educated college student, from a moneyed family. His mother is well-portrayed by Concetta Tomei, an elitist who tells Gibb she is trash, and not good enough for her son.
At first, all is well in the marriage. Grieco is handsome and a good provider. He married Gibb when she was pregnant from the rape; she told him she had no idea who the father was, but Grieco said "this does not matter, I love you anyway". Her father wanted her to put the baby up for adoption, but she was not heartless enough to do that. Eventually Gibb has two more children with Grieco. He begins to get stressed, drinking and arguing and at one point forcing her to have sex while she is pregnant with her third child.
Overall a decent story with a twist. Watch it and you will find this to be interesting. 8/10
