A heart-rending movie.
28 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Margaret Colin gives an outstanding performance in this made-for-television movie about her involvement in a hit-and-run accident. Driving home on a rainy afternoon in poor visibility she is distracted & then collides with a young riding girl a bicycle, knocking her off & seriously injuring her. After trying to make her comfortable she leaves the scene of the accident to phone for help. Some reviewers have pointed out a flaw in the plot that make the movie implausible. Everyone these days carries a mobile phone so why didn't she have one?. Back in 2003 when this was first aired it was just possible to believe she wouldn't be carrying a cell phone. When she returns an ambulance has already arrived as well as a large group of people. They all think the girl is the victim of a hit-and-run driver who has fled the scene. "What kind of a person would do something like this", they are saying. She is racked with guilt & fails to admit her part in the accident even to her husband. Things just go from bad to worse for her as tries to cover up her mistake & starts to lose her rationale. You really do feel for the poor woman & the torment she is suffering. A lady detective has been put on the case & begins to suspect that she might be involved by some of her increasingly odd behaviour. Her relationship with her husband is beginning to break down completely. When it all gets too much for her to bear any longer she decides she must tell her him the truth. It a shattering blow to their marriage & her relationship with her children. The girl's mother is furious at what she has done & cannot understand why she never owned up earlier. She will never forgive her & she is also shunned by her friends & neighbours who also despise her for what she has done. At the movie's end she is forgiven by her children but it is left uncertain as to whether her husband will ever do the same. Hit And Run is a made-for-television movie way above the average.
