Nice companion piece to "A Family Thing"
7 April 2005 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

A working-class Boston, married, white woman is raped by a black thug and has to give up the resulting child for adoption, despite the fact that she loves her. The girl grows up knowing two adoptive mothers -- one black, one white -- but when she becomes a wife and mother herself, finds that her children only know half of their family history, something the girl sets out to rectify.

The only element of this TV-movie that doesn't quite work is the sappy, schmaltzy 'women's music' (keening vocals sung to slightly-ethnic new agey themes) which needlessly well up at virtually every emotional moment. The picture stars four quality actresses in a strong story of interracial adoption; it's really an insult to their powers as thespians to insert wailing cries of sadness or elation as if the audience won't 'get' what is happening. They did this a lot in old Hollywood films, making many of them unwatchable today.

I would have liked to have seen more scenes with Alice Krige as Barbara's mom during her adolescence; not quite sure why it got such short shrift. Otherwise a good film with a similar theme to "A Family Thing", which stars Robert Duval and James Earl Jones as brothers who never knew that they share the same mother.
