Not a bad TV movie
11 October 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

As far as TV movies go, this is not a bad watch. It is very well made and the acting is very strong. Kirstie Alley has an excellent performance and so do the supporting actors. The movie is not perfect and is a bit unsatisfying in the end, but the movie has some nice themes and is worth a look if there is nothing great on at that time. I give the movie a 6.5. This is a 6.5 TV rating. At first watch, the movie seems like it might be a supernatural movie of some sort, but it is not. The characters seem quite real and you do start to care about them. The movie carries a very melancholic vibe throughout it, and there is a definite feeling of loss. This is not in a bad way, but I did hope there was more of a resolution in the plots main themes.
