Movie Reviews

Daughter finding her mother
Roberta Hotard | Somewhere here, Florida | 10/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Julie (Melissa Gilbert) goes out to search for her birth mother due to her becoming ill and needs medical information. I will not give the details of the whole movie but has a very horrific past for Beth (Patty Duke) who plays the roll of the birth mother to Julie. This movie was very heart warming at the end , there was not a dry eye from me and kept me on the edge of my seat. Dont recall seeing this on television, I dont know how I missed it. Now I own it and was a great price on Amazon. Everyone needs to have their medical history information of birth father/mother because you just never know. Enjoy."
Great movie at a great price!

"I love Patty Duke, and this is a great performance by her. I remember watching this film when it first aired several years ago. I taped it and have watched it several times over the years. I am so glad it has arrived on DVD.

Ms. Duke and Ms. Gilbert are wonderful together, and this re-teaming of them is certainly worth the price. William Shatner, Eric McCormack, and Gordon Clapp all have roles in this movie too, but it is the chemistry of the two stars that really makes this something special.

The story is interesting and leaves the audience guessing. Even though I've seen it several times, it never gets old. Great performances definitely make it more memorable though.

If you are a fan of either of the leads, or if you just love great entertainment, this is definitely a DVD you should have in your collection."
Great storytelling!

"I'm a fan of Melissa Gilbert and have seen this movie twice. Enjoyed it both times. This is a mystery that'll have you guessing throughout and it's fun to watch despite the horrific details involved. As a viewer you're practically Julie's companion in her journey to uncover the shocking secrets as described in the description of this film.

I don't have this movie but I might buy it someday. I'd enjoyed it so much that I had to submit the review for this film. I'd watch it again. Ms. Gilbert and Ms. Duke are great to watch."
