A well-driven vehicle for Beverly D'Angelo
22 March 2005 | by (north dakota) – See all my reviews

The most underrated actress, Beverly D'Angelo, is given a role that she can sink her teeth into. Her portrayal of the professional widow Vivian Fairchild was magnificent. Ms. D'Angelo captures the deceit of a career scam-artist perfectly, with sensual cunning and craftiness.

Mackenzie Astin does a fine job as well, portraying a young man who has now lost both of his parents tragically.

People should find much to like about this film. The jazz soundtrack was first rate as well as the sets. Leslie Horan is an ethereal beauty that should be seen more often.

This film belongs to Beverly D'Angelo, although more screen time is given to Astin and his private detective, Dennis Haysbert(Major League's Serrano). She hasn't lost a bit of appeal over the years, and continues to amaze me by the depth she brings to her characters.
