possession obsession, CODA style
19 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

As TV movies go, this is a pretty good one, dealing with codependency. Connie Selleca, who co-wrote the scrpit, is very good as a newswoman who suspects her husband of infidelity, despite his protests (and some evidence to the contrary). Kevin Dobson plays the husband.

This is a good study of an adult child of an alcoholic, with the attendant denial, the people pleasing, and the compulsivity. The Selleca character, as she puts it herself, grew up being told that her feelings were wrong, that black was white and white was black. As a result, she can't trust her instincts.

It's an emotional and painful journey for this character and portrayed somewhat realistically. I don't really agree with one of the posters, who claims that the woman would have left her husband right away. It doesn't happen that way when you're dealing with such damaged feelings and the fear of abandonment. A strong supporting cast includes Grace Zabriskie and Georgeann Johnson.
