Good Choice
19 September 1999 | by Nancy-40See all my reviews

3 girls hit a man on a dark road, they don't know what to do, thier scared because they had been drinking so they hide the body and drive away. The movie shows how each of them deal with what they did and eventually the body is found and one girl who is a new reporter has to report on the story and she begins to slightly give away she knows something, and the 3 begin to get scared and trying to deal. Its a very good portrayal, its got a good but sad ending, they eventually turn on each other and it ends with the truth coming out and the movie shows what they do when people find out and 1 does the right thing but winds up hurting everyone by doing the right thing, its a very good sad movie.
