I felt this was a well made TV movie. The most astonishing fact is how much all the actors really looked like the people they were portraying. Especially Janel Maloney who played Amber - she is her honest to goodness identical twin. She did a good job of capturing her personality and strength as well.
Although there may be some questionable moral decisions to Amber's choices, I don't think anyone can deny the strength, tenacity and courage it took for her to come forward like she did. I'm glad this story was told more from her life and perspective. I don't think I could handle one that focuses more on Scott Peterson - he is so despicable. But they also chose an actor that closely resembled him and he did a good job depicting him, which had to be hard.
