Typical afternoon housewives stuff
25 August 2017 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I am sure that many women at home had enjoyed this TV movie. Even in France I am sure this feature was released. This is a portrait of a solid and so real woman. I would say that it is a rather feminist story, in the good way. Many female audiences, and I would also say the bulk, will feel the greatest empathy for this woman character played by a Joanne Woodward at her very best, fighting for herself and her children. OK, it may seem cheesy from time to time, but it is supposed to be shown to family audiences. Typical for TV audiences, at home, on afternoons. The last minutes are unforgettable.
