Well done, but dark
22 January 2003 | by sp27343See all my reviews

This was a spring 1986 installment of ABC's "Afterschool Special". It was about a young woman (Beth Miller) whose mother had become mentally ill and according to her father (Michael York) was deceased. The young woman discovers the truth, confronts her father, and then sets off to see mom. To her shock, she finds mom is so far gone mentally to even try to talk to. Much of the show is taken up with discussions with her father on mom's condition and why dad chose to hide it. (I remember thinking this particular installment was pretty dark for a young person to see) Well acted by York (as is everything he does), and well written/directed. Its a shame these Afterschool Specials are no longer being produced.
