Storyline

Based on the true story of one mother's quest for justice, this Lifetime Original Movie explores the extraordinary impact on an ordinary family when the oldest son is critically injured by a drunk driver. The movie begins with every mother's worst nightmare: Terry Stone and her husband, Geoff, answer an early-morning phone call and learn that their 19-year-old son, Andrew, has been in a car accident. When they arrive at the hospital, the distraught family members are told that Andrew has suffered severe head injuries, and that he may never fully recover. A highway patrol officer who witnessed the accident adds the chilling news that the driver who did this to Andrew was drunk. Months later, after Andrew has recovered and leaves the rehabilitation center, Terry begins her long and emotionally draining fight to make certain that the person responsible for this tragedy makes amends. Through it all, Andrew keeps his sense of humor, and manages to teach his mother something in the process. Written by Jorja Tracy

Good performance Meredith Baxter in a dramatic role.
26 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interestingly, this is the only dramatic role I've seen Baxter in where I was actually able to take her seriously. While some actors are capable of doing both comedy and drama brilliantly (e.g. Mary Tyler Moore, Katey Segal) others are better suited for either one or the other, and I think in general Baxter is better as a comedian. Since "Family Ties" I've seen her in a number of made-for-TV movies which had quite serious subject matters, but unfortunately I did not find her performance convincing. However, this one movie is an exception. I thought she mastered the facial expressions perfectly and gave quite a touching performance so I really have to give her credit for this.
