A Good Story Brought to Life By Shawnee Smith
20 March 2007 | by FutureDirector_1See all my reviews

Being a very avid Shawnee Smith fan for some years now, I made sure to watch the premiere of this movie on Lifetime last night. Like many of the Lifetime movies it was predictable in most parts but was no less exciting thanks to Shawnee Smith. All of the actors/actresses fit their roles well and the movie even had it's suspenseful, OMG!, Moments. I wasn't expecting much from the movie and I was proved wrong for doubting it. The script writing was amazing and yet once again Shawnee Smith has left me completely wowed by her persuasive acting, Her emotions were so real and alive that it would make anyone tender hearted for the characters situation. Usually I would go about 50/50 or five stars on a Lifetime movie but 10/10 stars for Shawnee Smith.
