Movie Reviews

A Cut Above The Average TV Movie!
James Helberg | Detroit, MI United States | 08/13/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Evidence Of Love" a.k.a "Killing In A Small Town" when it aired on CBS in the early 90's features an EMMY Award winning performance by Barbara Hershey (Beaches)The film is adapted from the book "Evidence Of Love" which is based on the true story of Candy Morrison who appeared to be an upstanding wife, mother and respected member of the community.
After an affair with her best friend's husband things spin out of control and Candy soon realizes the damage she has caused is irreversible. Confronted by her friend about the affair, their anger quickly becomes violent.
The film ends with a courtroom scene which has become all to familiar in made for TV movies. However, this film rises above such conventions with stellar performances by Hershey, Brian Dennehy and Hal Holbrook, a clever script by Cynthia Cidre and skilled direction by Stephen Gyllenhaal.
The DVD has no special features other that full screen presentation and scene selection. The picture quality is quite good and is beautifully packaged in a keep case coverbox.
This is feature film quality entertainment! Not your average made for TV movie!"
Absolutely superb, should have been a theatrical release
Dave Hillman | New York, NY USA | 05/11/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a brilliant version of the book "Evidence of Love," a true story about small-town repressions that lead to horrific circumstances. Brian Dennehy, Hal Holbrook, John Terry, and Lee Garlington are letter-perfect as the supporting cast. But you will never forget Barbara Hershey as the protagonist. Her performance is completely devastating, and it takes a subsequent viewing to appreciate just how flawless she is (she gets so deep into this character that you forget you're watching an actress). She won the Emmy and had this been a theatrical release (shoulda been, IMHO) she would have trotted home Oscar. One of the most exquisite performances ever filmed. She really delivers the goods, especially in the bone-rattling murder sequence."
Riveting, unforgettable, excellent film.

"I have never seen a made-for-television movie as riveting and powerful as this. Not only is the story, (based on real events) absolutely astounding, but the film offers a marvelous depiction of small town America in the bible belt and how very ordinary people can be led to do terrible things. Barbara Hershey's performance is one of the best I've ever seen by any actor anywhere. So finely nuanced and real. I will never, ever forget this film."
I Love This Movie!
H. Hall | Raleigh, NC USA | 02/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's very morbid but this case fascinates me. I know it IS a true story. I remember seeing this movie when I was 12 for the first time, yes I said 12. Since then I've seen it at least 15 times and now I own it. I've also read the book about the case, Evidence of Love, and I own that also. The book is very close to the movie itself, surprisingly. At the time I first saw it, I wasn't able to look it up on the internet, but since then I've researched it and that is how I came across the book. If anyone wants to see the real people and the real "victim", you can go to the crime library online and just type in Betty Gore or just search her name and it will come up. There was also a Murder by the Book special recently on court, oops, I mean trutv. I would like to see more about this case and would very much like to know where the people are today! I can't believe there isn't more on this case."
