excellent tv movie with great acting
19 February 2002 | by crawfordSee all my reviews

Managed to find this long out of print film and enjoyed it very much. As a fan of Philip Michael Thomas (Tubbs on Miami Vice) I really liked seeing his performance in this film. It's got great acting by Thomas and Leslie Ann Warren and an intriguing true story.
