  • Warning: Spoilers
    I kept being surprised all through this movie at how it took a somewhat distasteful subject, marital infidelity, and made you feel the pain of the person who is driven to look for love and validation outside of marriage, even when there was plenty of both inside the marriage. This movie explores very convincingly the tug-of-war that goes on inside a person who has absorbed the wrong values of one parent and has mistaken the martyrdom of the other parent. Frankly, I don't know how the married woman was able to resist having sex with that hot young man, but the fact that she didn't is all the more testimony to what an unusual and non-exploitive look at the issue the movie was able to present. Catch it if you can. It isn't the usual god-awful Lifetime fare.
