It was compelling and well done.
16 March 2004 | by (Studio City, CA) – See all my reviews

Honestly, this movie was extraordinary. Kirstie Alley really proved herself once again as a great actress. I was blown away at this made for TV movie. Usually this genre is week on script, but I could not turn it off. If you can get a copy of this film, watch it and you will be amazed at the story and Kirstie's performance.

Kirstie who is much curvier now, is brilliant in this dramatization of a true story. It is a horrific tale and was very well done.

Normally I do not care to write comments on films, but I was so moved to do so on this one. The film and Kirstie should receive an Emmy and SAG Award for this work.
