Great TV drama featuring a comedy actress
16 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is a great tale about the relationship between the wife of a Klu Klux Klan member and their African servant, Sophie. Lynn Whitfield was perhaps overacting in her part, but I was surprised from Patricia Richardson's performance. Patricia Richardson, who brought many laughs as Tim Allen's wife in Home Improvement, did a good job oposite Lynn Whitfield and deserves a reward for her outstanding skill, whether it be comedy or drama.
