pretty good TV movie
23 October 2001 | by MichaelM24See all my reviews

Okay, now I'm not much for TV movie dramas, but this one was pretty good. The highlight of the film, without a doubt, is Melissa Gilbert. She is a truely great, underrated actress, and her performance in this film is (I think) one of her best. Never has any actor in a TV movie made me feel so much sympathy for their character. There's equally-good support from co-stars Crystal Bernard, Scott Valentine, and Barry Tubb, but Gilbert is the standout in this fact-based telefilm.
