A real-life struggle for justice is shoehorned into a typically melodramatic format in this mediocre TV-movie drama that at times has all the subtlety of a stalker thriller. It took Kerry Ellison around a decade to settle her claim for sexual harassment against a co-worker at the California Internal Revenue Service. She received little sympathy from a male-dominated judiciary, yet she eventually won a decision that established new codes of conduct within the workplace.
star Rena Sofer looks suitably imperilled and impassioned in her first TV-movie role, but director Allan Kroeker has Victor Garber gnawing on the scenery as her nemesis.
Fact-based drama about a woman who is forced to take on the entire justice system to rid herself of an unbalanced workmate's unwanted attentions - and finds she needs all her reserves of strength to see the case through. Starring Rena Sofer, Victor Garber, Maria Ricossa and Karen Allen.
