15 Certificate


Our Score
The excellent Patty Duke - an Oscar winner in 1962 for The Miracle Worker - stars in a laudable attempt to combine adultery, alcoholism, stalking and grievous bodily harm in one woman's rather hectic life. Margot Kidder, she of Superman fame and the very public breakdown, appears in a cast that also includes the usually reliable James Farentino. If there is a soupçon too much going on, it is at least a movie which tries to cover up any slack in the script.


A woman is driven to drink by her husband's infidelity, and witnesses an assault. Initially reluctant to testify in court, she is finally persuaded by the victim's mother, but the trial results in her secrets being exposed and the defendant begins stalking her. Drama, starring Patty Duke, Margot Kidder and James Farentino.
