After their mother suffers a massive coronary, working mom Kristin Davis (as "Billie" Clark) takes over as caregiver for her mentally ill sister Tammy Blanchard (as Elizabeth "Baby" Davis). The smart schizophrenic woman moves in with Ms. Davis, handsome husband Joel Gretsch (as Rick), cute teen son Alexander "Alex" Le Bas (as Davis) and outspoken pre-teen daughter Mackenzie Aladjem (as Mollie). At first, the family manages to get along with only a few problems. Smoking is only allowed on the porch, for example. However, some increasingly bizarre outbursts from Ms. Blanchard take their toll on big sister Davis and others. The sisters have unresolved problems to deal with, and new issues threaten and disrupt the family in unexpected ways...

There are so many movies wherein mentally challenged people are portrayed as either lovable pets or homicidal maniacs, it's nice to see something more realistic. Carefully directed by Jim O'Hanlon and nicely written by Richard Friedenberg, this "Lifetime" TV Movie is one of their best. The key performance is delivered sensitively by Ms. Blanchard, who surprisingly did not receive an Emmy Award nomination. There is a small role for lovable Louise Fletcher and everyone is fine, with young Le Bas quite a surprise as the loner son who identifies with Blanchard. If there is one regret, it's that this family is unusually wealthy. Their jaw-dropping estate and ranch look like a show-places and it's difficult to believe they don't have the money to hire some professional help.

******* Of Two Minds (3/10/12) Jim O'Hanlon ~ Tammy Blanchard, Kristin Davis, Alexander Le Bas, Joel Gretsch
