15 August 2001 | tvsf411
| This movie was outstanding!!!
This movie is similar to "Erin Brokavich" starring Julia Roberts. Laura Innes gave an excellent, breakout performance as Pat Melacon. This movie gave a creative storyline, great wrting to the true story of a woman, Pat Melacon. The other cast gave it their best, and hope they'll be noticed at the 2002 emmys. Must see movie.
