Agreeable find!
18 January 2019 | by DoctorJuliaHoffmanSee all my reviews

I had never heard of this TV-Movie before, but it popped up as a suggestion on YouTube. I like mystery and suspense, so I tried it. I wasn't disappointed. Matt Salinger plays Jack, a man in a desperate search to find his kidnapped son who he believes is still alive. Lisa Elibacher plays Anne, a reporter who puts in all her time to help him. Joseph Kell appears as Jack's younger brother, Teddy. Ultimately, Mildred Natwick makes an appearance as Sarah, a woman who figures prominently in Jack's infancy. I enjoyed a well-spent hour-and-a-half on this entertaining mystery.
