A comment about this movie I read in a newspaper said, in essence, "Just in case you've been in a cave for the past two years, Amber Frey was Scott Peterson's mistress".
Okay, I must have been in a cave.
Why would I want anything to do with this tawdry story? When "The West Wing" first came on the air, I only liked one character--The President. It took a while before anyone else made me want to watch that boring show for any reason other than an intriguing plot line.
While Janel Moloney wasn't quite like Donna Moss, some of Donna's personality showed through. Frey came across as pleasant, a devoted mother, and determined to succeed in a career. Frey had a strong religious faith, though I don't understand how she could have thought sex outside of marriage was acceptable. Most churches condemn that. Anyway, her relationship with Peterson was anything but tawdry, based on the assumption she believed him. It was only later, when the truth came out, that Frey's relationship could be seen as national news. Even then, the media circus was not justified, and I thought it was a shame. Frey even became friends with people I thought would hate her.
This was a pretty standard TV-movie. Not too bad, but about what one would expect.
