As fine a performance as I've ever seen
1 January 2003 | by (North Providence, Rhode Island) – See all my reviews

What an unexpected treat this movie was! Christine Lahti plays a prominent doctor nominated for the post of Surgeon General of the United States and a small incident in her past threatens to ruin her chances. Ms. Lahti is absolutely magnificent in her role as the beleaguered doctor. She is so attractive and so real. Her little nuances like blowing on the empty bottle are wonderful. She is captivating and I found I couldn't take my eyes off her the entire movie. I'm not even sure how good the movie is. But Christine gives one of the finest performances I have ever seen. She is just wonderful.
