Excellent performances
15 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is a really great and moving film. Mary Stuart Masterson shows again a very intense performance. The change of her identity from Fran Benedetto to Beth Crenshaw is played very well. Will Rothhar who plays her son is just incredible.

"Black and Blue" is one of the better TV films.
