Compelling thriller - have never tired of watching it
28 May 2005 | by janetnewcomeSee all my reviews

This made for TV movie stars Melissa Gilbert and a very young Matthew Lawrence along with the father from family ties in a very different role as a father with a different twist. The music is haunting and atmospheric and I have found this enjoyable on numerous occasions. the main character Janet begins work as a nanny for Matthew Lawrence's character who has problems but she has her own demons to deal with. I particularly enjoy watching the relationship develop between Janet and the young boy and between herself and his father Mike. with his support she can begin to rebuild her own life and the jigsaw of her life. The suspense is kept up right until the end. I have never tired of watching this film which was shown on TV a number of years ago.
