Goofs

At Angela's and Jamie's confirmation ceremony, the parish priest is administering the sacrament. A parish priest would not normally administer this sacrament to young people who are receiving confirmation at the normal age: a bishop would administer confirmation. Parish priests only administer the sacrament of confirmation to converts, and only then when no bishop is available. See more »

Just watched this last night
8 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

I think Kellie Martin should have won an Emmy for this film. She plays Angela, a pretty but mousy-type attending a wealthy-area high school. She wants to fit in with the rich, snobby, popular crowd but is not like them herself. She comes from a large, devoutly Catholic family who "have what they need" but little else. Angela tries out for cheerleader and fails, for the Writers' Club and fails, even though she's a good writer, and this destroys her self-esteem. Add to that her wanting desperately to befriend the most popular girl in school Stacy (Tori Spelling), who is also the meanest and snobbiest, and being cruelly rejected as weird. You totally sympathize with Angela and see how she could have been driven to such a desperate act. Martin's riveting performance continues post-tragedy, as you see the guilt eating her up inside. This is truly an awesome made-for-TV movie. I highly recommend it.
