An excellent TV film for someone with an open mind
30 July 2000 | by (Bristol, England) – See all my reviews

The garish title promised a poor show but actually this is a good film with a thoughtful, articulate script (see especially the argument between the sisters), stunning photography (examples: the night ocean in the cove just before the argument; the sunsets over the island) strong performances from the cast, good character development and, most of all, the unequalled charm, beauty and sincerity of Joely Fisher in the lead role.
