Oh boy...
25 July 1999 | by AkellerSee all my reviews

This was a four hour TV movie, in which I expected insight into the human mind and child abuse. Instead, three and a half hours are devoted to things not even in the book. See our protagonist fight with her husband! See her fly on a plane! See her sell real estate! Finally, the movie gives sort of lip service to the book, but that's not really the important part.

Do not waste four hours of your life on this movie.
