Realistic portrayal of too common an occurrence today
27 February 2001 | by john191158See all my reviews

One of Lindsay's best,totally convincing in her portrayal of a battered wife who gives up her self respect and self esteem for love and to protect her children. Based on a true story Lindsay's portrayal was convincing and keeps the viewer glued to the screen throughout. This is one of my fave films of lindsay which scored high ratings when screened on Australian television in 1994. I give this a 9 out of 10.
