I have always known that Melody Anderson was one of the most beautiful but under-appreciated actresses in Hollywood. On one hand, this movie is a little of a tease as it taunts us with just how alluring the provacative actress is, but there is a limit on how far this could go as a tv-movie. It does show us just how good an actress she can be as her friends and son experience the pitfalls of her decisions. Ed Marinaro is a bit distant in his acting though, but Jerry Supiran proves how well he can do around the adult-minded script. Donna Pescow has a spirited, somewhat one dimensional character, but it is Melody who turns out the singular captivating presence.
