Along with South By Southwest(the best of the TV movies), A Story to Die For is one of the better TV movies based off the TV show, which I am a fan of. There are one or two parts in the middle half that drag slightly, but A Story To Die For is strikingly filmed with interesting locations and photography, and the music is excellent. The script is fine as is the direction, and the story is gripping and intense, with an ending that even I never expected. The acting is also strong, Angela Lansbury is superb as Jessica, while Richard Crenna is brilliant here, very likable and the chemistry between him and Lansbury is magic. Overall, a wonderful TV movie. 9/10 Bethany Cox
