Interesting Story & Beautiful Setting
12 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While other reviewers have panned this TV movie, I found it to be both interesting and entertaining. Somewhat loosely based on a novel by Barbara Parker, the Florida setting has been transformed to Sedona, AZ -- probably to better integrate the mystical elements within the movie. Voted one of the most beautiful cities in the U.S., the Sedona red rocks locations live up to their reputation and are breath-taking. I also enjoyed the musical score with its Native American influences. All the actors do a credible job portraying characters that are flawed and not always likable. The depiction of the love/hate relationship between steady, unemotional, older sister, Gail, and flighty, tortured, younger sister, Renee (portrayed by Joanna Kerns and Debrah Farantino, respectively), is believable and, ultimately, quite poignant. In short, in my opinion, watching "Sisters and Other Strangers" is worth a couple of hours of your time.
