Flawless, and that is saying something
30 June 2007 | by (Houston, TX, United States) – See all my reviews

If you are a newcomer to Lifetime movies and "What If God Were The Sun" was your first Lifetime movie, then you will become hooked. More often than not, Lifetime movies mirror themselves and are predictable to say the least. This movie, however, is a flawless work of art. Stephen Tolkin took a great leap forward in presentation for Lifetime movies, not to mention the gripping performances by Lacey Chabert and Gena Rowlands. I don't mean to specify excessively but the bulk of the power of this film came from Lacey Chabert's eyes. For the entirety of the film her eyes dominated the screen evoking intensely deep feelings. She was right on the mark with her performance, a feat I wasn't sure she could accomplish.

The writing was exactly what it needed to be: an opportunity for the actors to perform well. Lacey Chabert delivered and Gena Rowland's Melissa was truly a character that the audience was able to feel for.

Hands down a perfect ten. It was truly a magical watch.
