Marcia Gay Harden,
Popular model student Matthew 'Matt' Jannett is likely to get a college scholarship as diver, but the absurd pressure from father, a rigorous cop, is getting to him. When he and his mates decide to go swimming drunk at night, Matt takes off with his girl-friend Rachel Linden when the others strip. Rachel thinks he's in danger after a bad dive, jumps after him but trips, hits her head and drowns. Yet the whole community treats Matt as if he killed her by neglect, he's automatically suspended there's even a police investigation. Rachel's rival Vanessa Canningham now tries to seduce Matt. Rachel's guardian angel Will however coaches her to learn manipulating people so as to organize revenge and save Matt. Written by
Rachel Linden (Hayley Du Mond) and Matt Jannett (Gabriel Mann) are sweathearts in a deep love for each other. Leslie Chambers (Linda Cardellini) likes Matt, but he refuses her. In a party, the evil Leslie puts some drugs in Rachel's drink, but Matt drinks it, causing an accident with Rachel. She dies, and the angel Will (Jonathan Frakes) takes care of her. This movie is an enjoyable story of angel and spirit. Although being a television movie, it was released on VHS in Brazil and it is indeed a nice story. I did not like the conclusion of the plot, but it is a film good to see. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): `Morrendo Para Viver' (`Dying to Live')
