A fascinating film
4 December 2005 | by seminole1021See all my reviews

I stumbled on this film after it began on Plex and was captivated by Joe and Goldie. Only after it was over did I find that "Joe" was the infamous O j Simpson, which didn't spoil the film. Little Goldie looked so familiar that I wondered if perhaps she had gone on to become a mature actress using another name. She was such an excellent actress that I thought surely she must still be around.

Sadly, her resume ceases after a few years, and we have lost a real talent. Perhaps she would have become another Reese Witherspoon, my favorite.

I finally found why she looked familiar, because I had seen and loved her in Orphan Train. I have eleven daughters and granddaughters of my own and she brings back fond memories of raising them.
