Storyline

Joe Marshall is the perfect father and husband and is respected and admired in his community. But Joe is living a lie that he has tried to keep suppressed throughout his marriage. It is only when Elaine catches her husband in bed with his lover that Joe's lie rips through the facade. Joe's lover is a young man. This film is an honest, moving account of a woman struggling to cope with the discovery that her husband and father of her two children, the man that she has worked with side by side, is gay. The movie sees all four members of the family struggle to integrate this new complication into their family life. Written by Keith Rogers

Fairly strong and involving for a television movie...
29 August 2005 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Jean Smart is a tower of strength as married mother of two who follows a hunch one afternoon and tracks her husband of 20 years to a hotel room--where he's cozily wrapped in a white terrycloth robe and making chit-chat with a strapping man in a matching towel. His secret's out! Of course this is all cliché by now, and some viewers will bemoan that fact and give up right there, but the TV film "A Change of Heart" addresses these issues with a lot of forceful emotion and realistic exchanges. There's hurt, and anger, and tears, but it doesn't sink into sap. The male lover isn't given any dimensions--and seems to have a great home of his own, so why were they meeting in a hotel?--and the teenagers involved are tiresomely belligerent, but Jean Smart is the acting centerpiece here and she does the movie a world of good. Her speech to the board of directors where she and her husband work is flawlessly handled, and her bravura spirit at the end will give a lot of viewers hope. A good actress can do that.
