I Want to Live!
26 September 2005 | by (Dubai) – See all my reviews

CBS's schedule was thrown off by the football game last night, so I didn't get in on this from the beginning. And I have yet to see the first installment in the Martha saga. But I liked this made-for-TV movie well enough. There are a couple of scenes in the prison that make it worthwhile. I am thinking particularly of the ones in the mess room and those involving the Christmas decoration contest. The sweater her fellow cons present to Martha as she's leaving the prison is priceless. As an actress, Cybil Shepherd is far better suited to the scenes in prison than to those in the corporate boardroom, a thought she'd probably sympathize with. The supporting cast is first-rate. Don't expect to learn a lot about what makes Martha tick, but, if you like Cybil Shepherd, or Martha Stewart for that matter, this should interest you.
