Storyline

A typical American family - photographer father, two talented daughters, Michelle an accomplished commercial artist with a clear upward career path. Then she has an auto accident, and the head trauma leaves behavioral changes. The part of the brain involved in impulse control is damaged (but the lesion is not visible on the usual CAT scan, and psychological tests are not done). Michelle has no control of her sexual impulses, and changes to 'a thief, a liar, and a whore' as her eventual therapist puts it. The family is broken apart, her sister and mother leave, but the father remains convinced that the daughter he loves is in there somewhere. It is a long and harrowing road to understanding of her sex addiction, and the end is not certain, but hopeful. Written by Bruce Cameron <dumarest@midcoast.com>

Not Exactly R-Rated
6 December 2002 | by (Delaware, USA) – See all my reviews

After I saw "Sins of the Mind" on Lifetime, I checked out the summary on imdb.com. I saw that when the movie was released, it was rated R. Now either someone cut out all the bad parts so this movie could be on TV, or the people who rate movies weren't paying much attention. I am Christian, so I don't watch rated-R movies. This movie wasn't as dirty or sinful as all the reviews say....at least not once it's on TV. This movie is sad, because you, the viewer, are sitting there watching someone battle an illness; an addiction, and instead of being understanding, you know that people are going to think this girl is just insane or sinful. She simply couldn't control herself; she couldn't control that part of her brain. The movie gets going pretty fast, and it's pretty good throughout, and then the ending is really not final. It kind of just ends, which is a disappointment. But I still recommend this movie to anyone who is a frequent Lifetime TV viewer.... a Lifetime movie is exactly what you're in for.
