Sally Field was never better
20 March 2004 | by (London, England today) – See all my reviews

I saw this in high school and it stayed with me to this very day. I SO WISH it would be released either on vhs or dvd. This is the performance that proved to me how much more than "Flo" Polly Holiday was. But Sally Field is truly remarkable. Not that "Norma Rae" hadn't already shown the world that, but this is a quiet storm brewing here about a young wife and mother who's husband suddenly doesn't come home one night. Anyone who's lost a spouse to an "accident" can identify with this story. The acting takes it leagues above the soap it could have been (in lesser hands). Catch this one in any way you can.
