Michael is a 'guardian angel' who appears when children need an invisible ('imaginary') friend until the birthday after his help worked. His charge from ages 5 to 10, would be-author Jane Claremont, is about to marry Tv series star Hugh Danderford. Now Michael appears again, but neither understands with which mission. He's in love with her, a new experience, gradually seduces her by being his irresistible, soul-mate-like self and becomes corporeal. She stubbornly claims toward him, Hugh and her best friend, a psychotherapist, to remain committed to Hugh. Written by

During the last 15 minutes, Jane and Michael are standing outside talking. It is obvious they are not really outside, as there is no wind, their hair never moves at all nor does anything move in the background. See more »

Jane Claremont (Emily Alyn Lind) has imaginary friend Michael. Her mother Vivienne (Stockard Channing) takes her to Tiffany's for her 10th birthday. It's time for Michael to leave her. Twenty years later, Jane (Alyssa Milano) is marrying TV star Hugh Morrison (Ivan Sergei) when her imaginary friend Michael (Eric Winter) reappears. He's sure that she needs him for some reason. She doesn't believe him and seeks help from her psychiatrist friend Jaqueline (Kristin Booth).
This Lifetime TV movie has an intriguing premise. With Tiffany's being such a prominent landmark in the story, this needs to be shot in NYC especially the exterior shots. As for the story, Hugh needs to be more of a douche. Other than being self-obsessed, he doesn't seem to be horribly bad. There has to be a bigger reason for Michael to return. As for falling in love with Michael, there needs to be a more in-depth look into the life of imaginary friends. The intriguing premise should lead to something more compelling than this.
