Storyline

A woman with two children believes she has three and her husband and oldest daughter play along with her to keep her balanced (or as close to balanced that a woman with an invisible child can be). However, when the family hires a new nanny, it is all just too much for her and she starts to blab. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Interesting...
10 February 2000 | by (Gainesville, FL) – See all my reviews

From the title I thought that this movie would be some drivel about latch key children or what not. I was surprised by what I saw. The plot was original, extremely original considering that this is a Lifetime network movie.

Basically the invisible child is the middle child in a family. The mother created her, and spends as much time caring for her as for either of the other children. The treatment of Maggie, the imaginary child, is not shallow. Maggie has strong character traits and a personality. She is a dynamic character and is truly a member of the family.

Problems exist within the family because of Maggie. The nanny is understandably bothered by Maggie. The youngest child was born after Maggie, and he believes that she is real.

This movie is worth seeing. It is an interesting concept.
