Another addictive Lifetime movie helped along by (a perky) Linda Hamilton
27 December 2014 | by juneebuggySee all my reviews

So this was your typical Lifetime movie helped along by Linda Hamilton, a decent supporting cast and a fairly addictive story. These movies are so easy to get sucked into and this was no exception as the reasons for "Julia's" hardships are certainly plausible enough (cheating husband, followed by divorce, followed by several mishaps that leave her homeless) and then you just have to see how she's going to put her life back together and what man will come along to provide the romance.

I like Linda Hamilton and she does a good job here, at first I found her portrayal of Julia to be freakishly upbeat and bubbly in an overacted way but I've come to the conclusion that was how the character was written as she's consistent (ly gung-ho) throughout. Her relationship with her daughter seemed realistic, the real-estate angle was entertaining and I also enjoyed Canadian actor Rob Stewart as the (said) love interest.

Its a little frightening to see just how quickly someone's stable, affluent life can fall apart and this was certainly intriguing to watch as she struggles to rebuild herself, discovering along the way that what is most valuable in life are not material things. 12/25/14 Langley B.C plays somewhere suburbia (with a bad part) USA
