| Tough, unyielding TV-movie with some over-the-top flourishes...
TV-made dramas usually treat psychiatric problems with the usual two-hour philosophies, hand-wringing and hopeful cures, but this one does not. It presents a case history of a wife and mother suffering from multiple personality disorder with very little nonsense. Heather Locklear's lead performance is gripping, tough and sad; of course it's wrong to think she's not a real "actress" just because she's pretty, but who would've thought her capable of such raw emotions and depth? She has a fine director behind her (Stephen Gyllenhaal, who did riveting work with Barbara Hershey in "A Killing In A Small Town") and together they create a world of night becoming day becoming night becoming day that is this character's existence. A side-plot about pool-hall prostitution is sketchily drawn, and Locklear's relationship with her late father (and his dirty doings) is left too vague, but the overall impact of the narrative is carried out with incredible style. It packs a wallop. *** from ****
