Wonderful surprise
27 July 2003 | by (San Francisco, Ca) – See all my reviews

What appears to be a low budget disease of the week film has much more to offer. I loved this film. Ever since HBO's The Corner, I have been fascinated with Khandi Alexander. She is a brave and unique actress. Never the same. Sometimes normal and beautiful, sometimes really scary and on the edge. And in this film, quite funny at times. Unfortunately, she seems wasted in the current TV show CSI Miami. I was excited to find this film which I had not heard of by accident. Because of Khandi I bought the thing immediately. The characters are fresh and interesting, enhanced by great performances. Yes it is a 4 hanky disease of the week film, empowered by an unforgettable, totally unpredictable ending. Bravo for originality in a stale genre. A buried treasure.
