My favourite movie
18 April 2002 | by jennytorkSee all my reviews

I absolutely love this movie. The plot is not predictable, though the actors seem wooden at times. It kept me on the edge of my seat and I wept at the final scenes. True, it requires a bit of a willing suspension of belief, but isn't that what movies are for? This is my favourite TV movie of all time, and I heartily recommend it to anyone and everyone.
