Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

The year before she gave such an impressive performance as the HIV-positive Robin in Boys on the Side, Mary-Louise Parker produced another powerful portrayal of a young woman with Aids in this deeply affecting TV movie. She is admirably supported by Sissy Spacek as the nurse who wants to adopt the HIV-infected baby Parker has abandoned, and by Joan Plowright and S Epatha Merkerson as, respectively, a nanny and a social worker caught up in the case. This goes to show just what can be done with a true-life drama if it's handled with intelligence rather than sensationalism.
