Banal stupidity
12 October 2005 | by (L A.) – See all my reviews

Got to see this last night on the Lifetime channel, and I have to say it wasn't worth the wait - what a ridiculous waste of time, for all concerned. Gale Harold (a brilliant actor) was completely underused, and Shepherd, although she turned in another competent portrayal of Stewart, was given nothing even remotely inspired to work with. The whole thing felt contrived from the get-go, with no sense of reality; this got even more pronounced during the actual prison segment, which was depicted more like a sorority house with a bad cook, no linen and no tablecloths. None of the characters felt like living, breathing, genuine people, and the script never went beneath the surface to reveal anything that felt truthful; it was like Stewart herself had given them permission to do the movie but also warned them not to include one second of footage that would humiliate her (or, in actuality, humanize her) in any way.
