When I was watching this movie I didn't know that it had been made for TV. So I'm very pleased with the quality and the plot of the movie.
It's the story of a lonely woman who feels outstanding and wants to find peace. The problem is that she's werewolf. Since the beginning of the picture she's tossing between his inner dissatisfaction, her love to the man and a psychiatrist who tries to help her.
Well, the authors of the 'Wilderness' tried to add psychological validity(Freud doctrine) to the plot but they rather failed over here than succeeded. The character of doctor Luther Adams is weakly depicted and he seems to be erotomaniac interested in his work only rather than enlightened scientist.
What really takes my breath away - it's Amanda Ooms. She plays so deeply and ardently that you can't help believing she's exactly a werewolf.
My vote is 6.
