Custody of the Heart

Custody of the Heart

David Jones (3) (2000)

PG Certificate


Our Score
An accomplished cast is rather wasted in this unexceptional TV-movie drama, in which Lorraine Bracco plays the careerist whose spare time is divided between her family and disabled mother. Martin Donovan is miscast as the husband so emasculated by his wife's competence that he sues for divorce, while Bracco's decision to abandon her perfect life and begin again in a renovated lighthouse detaches the plot from its semblance of reality and leaves it to drift into fanciful melodrama.


An outgoing, ambitious career woman divides her time between work, family and caring for her elderly mother. But her stay-at-home husband develops a strong inferiority complex and demands a divorce, claiming he should get sole custody of the children. Drama, starring Lorraine Bracco, Martin Donovan, Dennis Boutsikaris and John Neville.
