good one
17 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

Erika Eleniak is awesome in her portrayal of Samantha, a woman who's husband is murdered on their wedding day. She then tries to kill herself and she ends up in a psychiatric institution.

I saw this movie on Lifetime Movie Network last night. I had not seen it since I first rented it back in 1998, and my feelings about it had not changed--it is still a very good movie. Eleniak is beautiful and talented and the other principals (Ironside, Colvey, and Bick) are very good in this as well.

This is a nice mystery and I recommend it if you can find it--a good film to watch when you are curled up on the couch on a cold, rainy night.
