Stockholm Syndrome
4 June 2017 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

The late Diana Sands gives an intelligent performance in her quiet, vulnerable moments that comprise much of this very low-keyed, no-budget independent feature made in Stockholm; although she doesn't convince as the glossy, knock 'em dead diva the plot claims her to be.

The original screenplay by Maya Angelou predictably has plenty to say, some of it obscured by indistinct sound recording. Simmering away in the background, the character with most to say is Georgia's formidable travelling companion, Alberta Albertson, who as played by Minnie Gentry resembles Malcolm X reincarnated as Norman Bates's mother and guides the film towards its melodramatic conclusion.
