Intriguing soap opera with another fine Kate Jackson performance
12 May 2005 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Non-exploitive TV-movie has Kate Jackson cast as an attractive female teacher in her mid-30s who has an affair with a student and is ostracized. Long-forgotten dramatic effort is more substantial than it may first appear. Jackson is conflicted, hurt and confused--but also in love, which makes for some emotional moments. The straw-haired, strapping young man cast as her love-interest is a bit too dim however, and perhaps he's too muscular when sized up against Kate, and this throws the film's love story off-balance (he doesn't seem like someone she'd have more than a passing interest in). There's one terrific moment wherein Jackson goes to the boy's house to talk to his mother after the scandal has broke, and both actresses involved excel with the difficult scene. Not bad! Good telefilms like this deserve a second life.
