Ordinarily there's a certain expectation from 'made-for-TV' movies. This one, with the always-lovely Jennifer Beals, was marvelous. Her beauty and range of emotion...sometimes carrying scenes with a glance or a facial expression...tipped the scales for me. The interplay between Sarah and her 'love' was sweet throughout, and it was beautiful to see a couple's relationship grow slowly rather than race to a quick end. The final scene, without giving anything away, was just as you'd like the movie to end.
'Sarah's' surrounding cast was fabulous, but Jennifer's starring role was even more so. Three cheers for the movie, and endless cheers for Jennifer.
