Oscar worthy TV-movie!
12 May 2005 | by Treg1980See all my reviews

This is a great movie. Next to Linda's Terminator performances and her role in TV's Beauty and the Beast, this is her best performance to date. Which is a big thing to say, given the fact that Linda, in my opinion, is one of the best and most underestimated actresses Hollywood has ever had. She plays Rosemary with all she has to offer. You really feel what she feels. I also love the fact that she cut her (then) beautiful long hair short, and choose not to wear a wig. She really wanted to BE Rosemary Holmstrom. But all the other actors are great in this movie, especially Noah Fleiss, Kate Nelligan and RuPaul. Lately I hear someone say that when they watch certain actors/actresses, they always have the feeling they're watching the most famous character they've played. I never have that feeling when I watch Linda Hamilton. I never feel like I'm watching Sarah Conner or Catherine Chandler, or Linda Hamilton herself. Give Linda and this movie a chance!!!
