Storyline

Two young womens lives are changed forever in one moment. A strikingly beautiful and wealthy woman is hit by a truck and is all smashed up and nearly killed. At nearly the same time, a very plain looking lower middle class woman simply faints and suffers brain death. The beautiful womans brain is fine, so, doctors merely transplant her brain into plain Jane. Problems ensue when plain Janes husband continues to believe she is still his wife. She has no memory of him, and goes to live with the beautiful womans husband. She doesn't mix well with her new socialite friends and family. Mirrors are emotional battlefields as well.

I am shocked
10 June 2003 | by Authoress001See all my reviews

Usually, I hate the movies that Lifetime airs. My parents watch them constantly, and they seem to all be the same. But this one struck me. I really enjoyed it. It was dramatic without being overly-dramatic. I think the characters were well-developed, and the actors did a stunning job, even if the dialogue was a little choppy here and there.

All in all, "Who is Julia?" was a really good movie, and I would recommend it to anyone.
