The best TV movie Showtime has ever done!
18 April 2003 | by (Toronto,Ontario) – See all my reviews

Joe Sargent was ruthless with the editing,the fast cuts pulled you right into the story, he made it move at a great pace.

Don Morgan did a brilliant job on lighting - I love it when a DOP is not afraid to have faces drop into shadows. Beautiful texure throughout.

Jeff Ginn did an absolute stellar job on production Design.

The show felt like a feature film.

Christine Lahti should be nominated for her role in this film
