Nicely Done; Surprisingly Good
I saw the ads for this on TNT and was impressed by the stable of actors involved. Sam Neill, excellent in everything I've seen him in, (including "Omen IV"--that's saying something); Rob Lowe, an actor who until recently hasn't secured the challenging roles his ability demands; and Alicia Coppola, an actress whose looks and abilities deserve more air-time.
The surprise aspect: A very good story. Nice twists, and a sense of humor and style (rare for TV movies, generally speaking).
Sympathetic characters (a depth to them) with shades of gray. They make mistakes and deal with them, but in the end maintain their integrity.
All in all, worth the time spent watching. Satisfying and entertaining. In the end, that's everything a movie should aspire to be.
