TOUCHING!
13 October 2003 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This film was touching, not just because it was one of those you-can-do-it survival films, but because it dealt with the personal freedom we all wish to have. Nice young girl (Doherty) is put upon by evil hearted ex-lover (Matheson). Doherty is well defined as an ambitious nurse, who is later a victim of the most uncontrolably disasterous relation. This film shows much relation to the tragedy of Dominique Dunne story, and it's a shame Dunne's life did not end up like the Doherty character, however, the film does get the message accross, that everyones bill comes to. Always fun to watch Doherty, and an actually believable Matheson, this one was rather good.
