I really liked this movie..very well executed
2 February 2006 | by JammySee all my reviews

For a TV movie the dialogue is really good in Sanctuary. And it's by far Melissa Gilbert's best adult performance. The relationship between her and Costas Mandylor is really sexy and romantic. They have some really fiery scenes. There is one where they are at a campfire and he's flirting with her, she thinks he's going to kiss her, she's finally ready and he doesn't, sort of punishment for all her coolness and it's fantastic. But really you get the feeling they've probably been in love since they were kids and their families spent summers at the island where Melissa Gilbert's family owns a big Bed & Breakfast. It has a lot of of real emotion especially in the scenes with Kathy Baker. It looks more like a movie movie than a TV movie because some of the photography is really beautiful, set on an island on the east coast. The music is good too, not the usual TV stuff. Also it has a lot more humor than you expect to find in a thriller. Keeps you guessing until the end which is kind of cheesy but it is after all made from a Nora Roberts book. All in all it is a really good movie.
