Sad inheritance
J. Gallant | alberta, canada | 08/21/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was a very good movie depicting the sorrows and heartbreak of addicted women and their children."
One woman's battles against addiction and the "system"
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 06/26/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"LIFETIME network's SAD INHERITANCE aired in 1993 as "Love, Lies & Lullabyes."

Here, Susan Dey is Christina Kinsey, a cocaine abuser whose out-of-wedlock child is born premature and physically addicted. Gabriel (Moffett), Christina's boyfriend is also an addict. He wants her to surrender the child for adoption.

When Christina's baby is taken from her by social services, she fights to reverse the decision by kicking coke and cleaning up her personal life. Florence Crawford (Toussaint) is the unsympathetic social worker who's had her fill of drug users, and Christina's mom (Laurie) is an alcoholic, so her help is necessarily limited.

In the 1986 feature film ECHO PARK, Susan Dey is a single mom and struggling actress who gives up bartending for the better paying, exotic job of singing strip-o-gram.
