Good acting, suspense, characters developed are unusual for a woman's TV movie
16 June 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I usually do not watch this type of movie unless it is based on a

book by a well known author, but I found this story unusual in that I

found excellent character development, good acting, a truly serious

treatment of spousal abuse, and a ton of suspense. I found

myself fearing the abuser, and waiting with baited breath for his

capture. Well done. The children were fine actors, and the abuser

was effectively underacted, and really scary. The grandparents

were very convincing, also fine actors. I recommend this movie if it

comes on TV again. Although this plot is frequently shown in

movies and on TV, this is one of the better and more realistic

treatments I have seen. I am not familiar with the starring actors,

but they look so familiar that you can empathize with them. I hope

these actors receive more attention from central casting. I rated

this movie "7".
