Better than average Lifetime movie
28 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Another one of those Lifetime movies that sucks you in on a lazy Sunday afternoon. This was one was actually pretty good. Here A woman searches relentlessly across the country for her missing sister (Jennifer Morrison) who is suffering from bipolar disorder and took to drugs and wild partying before she disappeared.

With no help from police or authorities (because her sister is an adult)locating Ashley takes 'Libba' into some dangerous situations and almost costs her everything (marriage, career) but she refuses to give up.

Based on a true story this has the usual Lifetime budget, acting skills and cameos from familiar, now aging actors. Filmed in Vancouver which substitutes for Portland here. 05.13
