Excellent suspense movie
3 July 2002 | by (Alpharetta, GA) – See all my reviews

This made for TV movie shows what public TV can provide. An excellent cast (I believe most of them were part of a New York City theater company at the time) included John Lithgow, Meryl Streep, Mary Beth Hurt and others. The plot is compelling and very suspenseful.
