See the wonderful 1980 version instead
25 December 1999 | by AlexMISee all my reviews

Ellen Burstyn's 1980 film of the same name is a far better film. This one left me cold... don't understand why the makers felt the need to do a "TV update" of the original story. If you've seen this TV version, do yourself a favor and rent or buy the 1980 video -- it is terrific.
