A honest Afterschool Special about the rich vs. the poor
11 November 2018 | by abbazabakyleman-98834See all my reviews

Fran (Kari Michaelsen) is not happy that her mother (Marion Ross) has signed on to be a maid for a rich couple over the summer, but her attitude changes when she starts hanging around the couple's teenage daughter Andrea (Jennifer Jason Leigh), who is constantly shunned by her classmates, particularly Fran's snobby cousin Brenda (Hallie Todd), but all the girls learn a valuable lesson about how being rich doesn't always make you happy. Julie Piertaski and the late James Karen have supporting roles.
