So Hallmark Hall of Fame has some competition . . .
6 October 1998 | by See all my reviews

Who says only Hallmark Hall of Fame can make wholesome, heart-warming films. "About Sarah" is one of the best movies I've seen on television in a very long time. Kellie Martin's performance was just what we've come to expect from her -- sincere with just the right dose of angst thrown in for good measure. The real star of this movie though, who deserves all the accolades she'll rightly receive for her performance, is Mary Steenburgen. What a great performance! If she isn't at least nominated for an Emmy, there is no justice.
