when good people do bad things
31 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Hit and Run" is a shattering story starring the always wonderful Margaret Colin as a society lady who "has it all" until she hits a child with her car and leaves the scene. Hence the title. The tragedy is that she goes to call for help and returns, but is frightened away by angry passers-by who think the hitter abandoned the scene. This was made in the days when not everyone had a cell phone or there wouldn't be a story.

Colin's guilt and anguish are palpable and cause her to act so strangely that a detective gets onto her right away. Her lies sink her deeper and deeper into a self-loathing hole, causing her to make a bad situation worse.

This is a very thought-provoking story, and one can't help but to feel this lady's pain, wishing throughout that she would simply come clean.

As a TV movie, thanks to Colin and a strong script, this is a well above average TV movie.
