A surprise...
20 February 2002 | by (RI) – See all my reviews

This is a very good effort for a TV movie. Given the subject matter, this could have been a bad episode of a soap opera. But the cast (yes, even Rob Estes) keeps things in line and presents the material intelligently.

For the record, Jenny Lewis is absolutely *beautiful* in this movie...as beautiful as I've ever seen an actress on the small screen.

If this pops up on the tube sometime, be sure to check it out.
