a very powerful film
3 December 1999 | by (calif) – See all my reviews

black and blue was a very moving and intense movie. mary stuart masterson proved once again what an excellent actress she is. i loved the story, it has a very realistic feel to it. This is something that goes on all the time. Her husband a cop, beats her constantly, yet she puts up with him. Anthony La Paglia did a very impressive performance. He is also a very talented actor that has not been given a break. I think more movies like this need to be done, to get the word out on domestic violence.
