Tricky flashbacks
10 February 2007 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

Melinda must confront her hostile mother (the ageless Anne Archer) in order to make right the situation for a little girl whom Melinda first knew back in grade school. The girl has died of leukemia, but at the time Melinda first encounters her, back in the second grade, she does not know how to help her. It takes the return of the ghost (Abigail Breslin) to get the ball rolling. The girl's parents are long divorced, which complicates matters. Archer is delightful as Melinda's sharp-tongued mother who harbors a deep, dark secret. The show's continuity is on display here, as the girl ghost goes from sickly-looking to absolutely radiant as she helps reunite her parents.
