6 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An interesting story given the Hallmark touch. Potentially, the plot was somewhat hard-hitting, but it was handled the way the Harlequin romances were when made into movies: light, entertaining, perfect Sunday afternoon fare. The story concerns idiot savant twins who were suspected, but never tried and convicted, of killing their mother thirty years earlier. The twins were separated and put into separate facilities and, without each other, they stopped communicating. An ex-nun becomes involved in finding the real killer. The cast is able, though the main character is short on development.

David Proval does a good job as the twins and Patty Duke brings spark as a nun.
