PG Certificate


Our Score
Best known as Monica in the long-running television series Touched by an Angel, Derry-born Roma Downey must have needed the patience of a saint to cope with the melodramatic demands made on her in this tear-jerking TV movie. Also known as A Secret Life, it's the kind of film they'd once have made with, say, Jane Wyman as the wife who discovers her husband has a mistress after he's been injured in a plane crash and Margaret O'Brien as the love child from that illicit union. Downey and Kristina Malota do well enough in the roles, but this is pretty heavy going.


A woman is devastated to learn a plane on which her husband was travelling has crashed, leaving him in a coma. However, the disaster leads to the revelation that he has been conducting a secret relationship with another woman, who did not survive the crash. What's more, they had a daughter. Drama, starring Roma Downey, William Russ and Jamie Rose.
