13 July 2001 | by andriambaSee all my reviews

I thought this was one of the best Lifetime MadeforTV movies I have seen, principally because of really strong,affecting performances by Bracco, McCarthy, and the always dependable Boutsikaris. I would give it 9 of 10 stars only because the script telegraphs its points a bit and because a woman as successful as the Bracco character seems written to be pretty dumb about some other, domestic/divorce/court matters.
