Jessica's extraordinarily strong will and heart enables her to rebel against her fanatical, cult-like upbringing. From seven to seventeen Jess is brainwashed to be one of the 'saved', to devote her life to Jesus, to follow the discriminatory teachings of Pastor Finch and his understanding of Revelations. As her warm personality dictates she succeeds in fitting into this regime and spreads the word of Jesus in a fairly content manner. But when her friendship with Melanie develops into something a little more 'unnatural' she easily realizes the error of the Pastors teachings. The girls are subjected to terrible treatment to convince them to repent. Written by
In my opinion, the finest movie ever made for television. Charlotte Coleman and Geraldine McEwan are magnificent.
I stumbled upon this movie quite by accident when it was shown in 1990 or 1991 on A&E in Canada, and I stayed up all night to watch it again. I bought Jeanette Winterson's book the next day and have loved it ever since.
