Storyline

School teacher Chris Bevan is a dutiful husband to his dull wife, Josie, and ingrate daughters. His best friend knows Chris' heart always belonged to Marian, his vibrant, flippant fiancée, who mysteriously disappeared years ago. Suddenly he sees her in a shop and can't help following her. He gives up as she has a new identity, as wife of plumber Bernie Sullivan. Bernie's real passion is Houdini-era 'real' magic, while in fact she's his terrified captive, forced to replace his late assistant. Furthermore one of Bevan's daughters has a phone-relationship he forbids, deeming it dangerous on principle, ignoring this is real and ties in to Marian's plight. Written by KGF Vissers

As an American I found myself unfamiliar with most (if not all of the actors). Tomlinson I found puzzling as one commenter mentioned--wooden. But he does grow on you. In fact his portrayal if essential to the development of the character he creates.

Marian was a tour de force. A proper comparison to my mind is Bette Davis especially in Now Voyager where she transforms from a dowdy unattractive spinster into a radiant beauty in one single uninterrupted camera shot. I had to keep screaming to myself that this is the same woman before and after.

The 13 year old could not have been any more true to a 13 year old.
