Jewel??
26 February 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This made for TV movie plays it way too safe despite good tries by Fawcett and Bergin. The story of a woman and her down syndrome child should have been moving, but there are no surprises, and the whole two hours dwindle away to a conclusion that will make you wonder what the point was in the first place. Ill conceived soap operatics involving Jewel's other children are boring, and does anyone notice Fawcett does not age in the entire sixteen years the film takes place? A disappointment in its pedestrian execution. I give this a 3.
