But Amy begins uncovering odd bits suggesting there once was a baby boy.
Mixed into this is art instructor Eric (Vincent Ventresca), who knows the Quinns and Amy.
Joan snubs her visiting mom Sandy (Polly Bergen) when she hits town, and Stuart keeps trying to keep Joan peaceful.
Of course it all has to do with mysteries from the past, but it takes a long time to get to them. The intricate plotting becomes tiring, the characters tiresome. It’s no surprise that there are some impersonations going around, but it’s not that intriguing. Selleca’s character acts above it all until the truth starts leaking out, when she goes funny. Milano’s Amy, a sweet character, doesn’t know when to say no, and the actress capitalizes on the young woman’s naivete. Dukes is wasted as the concerned husband, but Bergen gives firmness and credibility to a thin role.
Telefilm, under Jan Egelson’s strict direction, is supposed to be a thriller, but it’s too long a reach; the thrill is gone. David Geddes’ lensing creates strong atmosphere, and Ron Yoshida’s editing is exemplary. Michael Nemirsky’s design is suitable, and Nicholas Pike’s score is satisfactory.
