I got this movie in a 4-movie package in the UK because I was after another of the movies included. I read the plot on the back and it sounded really interesting, I do like these 90s made-for-TV dramas. They are simple, accessible and usually rewarding.
Being used mostly to mid-90s to late 90s movies of this kind where it's totally by-the-book, this movie is different and you can tell from the first minutes. Not only because being from 1991 it is still far from the cliché-ridden movies that would follow but because of the way it was filmed as well (and the film used). I say this is a tough movie to watch. You really don't know how it's going to turn out. You hope that it's a by-the-book movie and that you will have the happy end. Does it?
Neil Patrick Harris is very good in his role, Teri Garr is also a joy to watch and the sister as well, to be honest all the cast is very good. I planned to do some small chores during the movie as I did not expect to be so drawn into it and enjoy it. I could not keep my eyes away. It made me cry several times as there are some scenes that are quite brutal for a sensitive person.
I recommend watching this movie for many reasons.
