Not too bad little murder mystery
27 September 2000 | by theehtSee all my reviews

This average little murder mystery, is a must for Susan Strasberg fans, since it gives her some ample screen time, and a chance to display the legendary Strasberg acting ability and beauty. She plays the Mom of the title girl, who just may or may not be a murderess. Okay for a slow night.
