| Really good look at the scandal from within
Very well written acted and directed. Lifetime has done a good job at showing the scandal from the point of view of the parents and the children. Managed to incorporate in a composite manner the details and aspects that we know from the headlines. It's nice to go beyond the headlines into their homes to see the detailed genesis of the crime from good intentions and love of their kids to over the line. Felicity and Lori aren't portrayed as characters. But we know who is based on who roughly. Really found Penélope Anne Miller sympathetic as the anxious mom faking her unknowing son's scores and sports record for a place in Stanford. Mia Kirchner is great as a different kind of mom pushier and less repentant. Really hams it up here in this juicy role. There are some pretty funny moments along the way. But things get serious when we get to see the fallout on the kids who have to face the consequences of exposure. The most moving aftermath I've seen in a Lifetime movie for a while.

Highly recommended
