User Reviews

it's Helen Baxendale's show
5 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

Credible and moody treatment of incredible premise, as Helen Baxendale is made to pay for minor extracurricular excesses when her up-and-coming lawyer is targeted for nasty mind games, career destruction and even death by crazies from university days.

It's surprising that this sober, gripping TV movie hasn't received more attention on IMDb; surprising too that Baxendale hasn't made more cinema films on the strength of this and other roles.

Baxendale's part is winning, bringing complexity and sympathy to the disintegration and recovery of a very real and character whose human faults are preyed on mercilessly. Her downward spiral as the walls close in is memorable and affecting.
