Classy TV thriller
20 September 1999 | by yendeskSee all my reviews

Donna Mills gives a powerful performance as a woman wrongfully jailed for murder in this pacey TV movie. The amazing thing is that it was based on a real life story. Robert Wagner is totally believable as her creep of a husband and I think this is one of the best TV Movies I've ever seen.
