Branigan does her best in a bleak situation.
21 June 2006 | by shelleyfanSee all my reviews

I purchased this film off ebay for the one simple reason that I was a Branigan fan and felt that it would be a good chance to see if she had acting ability. Apparently apart from being a very good singer Laura is also a decent actor. Given the script is weak and budget on the film looks low, I feel Ms Branigan did her best given the situation and realization that this was only her second picture. I think the movie as a whole had its dull moments and ran too long, but at rare times had good substance.

I recommend seeing this film if your a fan of the late Laura Branigan or you'd just like to watch a decent 'b' grade flick that is set in the beautiful city of Melbourne.
