Decent
16 October 2019 | by gregberne11See all my reviews

This is a better than average Hallmark/Made for TV after school special type of movie with a moral. Laura Linney is good as a girl who is addicted to cocaine, and her parents try desperately to get her back on the right track. It's a pretty basic and predictable plot, and I usually can't stand these kind of Hallmark movies where you know everything that's going to happen, but the acting makes this one better than average.
