Still Bewitching after all this time....
9 May 2018 | by simeon_flakeSee all my reviews

Another made for tv movie, I believe. I think Liz did a lot of these after a certain sitcom got cancelled trying to break away from whatever mold Samantha Stephens might have left her in. At any rate, a very good movie. First the young actress playing Liz's character as a teen before she lapsed into a coma, then Elizabeth appears, in a vegetative state, but still beautiful.

Apparently, Ms. Montgomery was in her 50s, but still playing a woman in her 30s--not much of a stretch. Anyway, it's an adjustment to her new surroundings, waking up all those years later. Touching movie at times, with a bit of humor and maybe some nice visuals. I might be thinking about some of the young college students in the film, but nevermind.

If you like Elizabeth Montgomery, then this is good stuff (obviously)....
