Elisabeth Shue's performance...
8 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

Her performance in this TV film was excellent, why she was overlooked for a Emmy nomination i will never understand. This film was such a good film , i watched with my daughter we both liked it very much. One of the many things i liked about the film is strong women roles about love, understanding and friendship, heartbreak....love it! The girl that plays the daughter i thought was also outstanding. I recommend this film to anyone that has a daughter or even a son because it portrays the strengths that build the relationships through time....I also like the beautiful scenery, lots of that in the film, i don't think this film is out on video or DVD yet, but it should be because it is a wonderful film to watch. I remember Elisabeth Shue way back when she played the daughter on a short lived drama series called "CALL TO GLORY" why that series was cut short don't get it, was a good family show to watch every week.
