Storyline

Deborah Matthews' divorce from her husband Jason Matthews has just been finalized. She filed for divorce because she believed he was cheating on her. Jason has since moved away to work on an often communication inaccessible research ship. That fact and the divorce itself does not sit well with their sixteen year old daughter, aspiring ballerina Erika Matthews, who blames her mother for her parent's martial problems due to her being a workaholic and for her not forgiving Jason for the indiscretion, which he vehemently denies. To make matters worse, Erika's long time ballet coach, Leonard Capas, has just quit before her important audition into the Ballet America summer program. Mr. Capas' resignation was solely by a cryptic letter with no in-person good-bye to staff or the students. Luckily, the ballet school is able to fill immediately Mr. Capas' job by a young man named Reed Halton, who believes he can help Erika prepare for her audition. Reed has been a widower now for eighteen ... Written by Huggo

After finding a condom wrapper in her car, attractive architecture designer Daphne Zuniga (as Deborah) suspects her husband is unfaithful. Newly divorced, Ms. Zuniga finds herself attracted to handsome young ballet instructor Sebastian Spence (as Reed Halton). He takes over as dance teacher for Zuniga's sweet 16-year-old daughter Elise Gatien (as Erika Matthews), after her regular teacher resigns abruptly. At first, Zuniga worries that dating her daughter's teacher may be unprofessional, but she needs to be "happy again." Maybe they should have included a scene with her checking out any condom wrappers around her own bed, or her daughter's...

"The Obsession" features central characters that are simply not convincing. We're told a mother loves her husband, yet there are no scenes questioning the condom wrapper and romantic video clip. Writer Christopher Morro and director David Winkler should have given us more reasons to understand Zuniga's conclusion (a previous affair, perhaps). Later, a quick slip into the sheets, with your daughter's doorway open, doesn't make sense. And, she could have been a little concerned and sneaky about her own activity. Also, nobody advises Ms. Gatien's character about other career options. She's a fine dancer, but seems quite unlike a professional ballerina.

*** The Obsession (2006-07-17) David Winkler ~ Daphne Zuniga, Sebastian Spence, Elise Gatien, William MacDonald
