"Gillian Anderson was fabulous. The movie was horrible. No matter how well the other stars might've done, the movie was poorly thought up. Gillian's character was sweet, southern, innocent, and kind. She didn't have a big part, but her parts were memorable. If you're a Gillian fan, see it."

"This hard to find video was well worth the effort. The story needed work but but see Gillian Anderson in a early role was great. Seeing her toppless was good too!"

""Turning" is a movie that touches both your heart and soul. It concerns the problems of a angry young man who returns home to his drunken mother and broken family, trying to mend the wrongs that have occured while he was gone. Violence explodes when his father's current girlfriend refuses to leave him. Die-hard X-File fans will be stunned at Gillian Anderson's preformance, who acts as un-Scully like imaginable, and who also has a notorious topless (and braless) scene. The actors are exellent, but the story lacks a good plotline. Good only for casual watching. Explicit language."
The best thing to do with 'The Turning' is switch the televi

"Before Gillian Anderson became mega-hit FBI Agent Dana Sully in the phenomenally successful TV series 'The X-Files', her first movie role was in 'The Turning'. With a maximum of two scenes in this film, I found the love scene quite good. All I ever hear about 'The Turning' is the love scene. However if you can live without seeing it, that's fine by me too. You'd be doing yourself a favour if you didn't see it. Other then that I wouldn't waste my time with this film. It took me forever and a day to watch this from start to finish. It moves quite slow and doesn't really have much to say and is quite boring. A son revisits his parents going though a divorce and he tries to stop it from happening getting violent along the way. No one dies and the film just ends. In the 88 minute duration, I was waiting for it to get better and it never happened. Please turn your attention to another DVD. If you want other films with Gillian Anderson in them, check out 'The X-Files Movie', 'Playing It By Heart' and 'The House of Mirth' both three films are of a much better quality and standard to this monstrosity. One bad turn doesn't deserve another."
This was a very good movie...

"The Turning had a very good plot about a young man who lived in a small town. He evidently left town for a few years leaving his girlfriend, (Gillian Anderson), his mom and his dad. When he finds out that his mom and dad are getting a devorce many exciting events occur, (Idon't want to give away the hole movie). All in all, the acting was great, the plot was very good and you should see this movie."
