    Harper and the film's director, Jeremy Kagan, try valiantly, but they are unable to bring Meir to life or hold viewers' attentions.

    Reconfigured into a very different one-woman movie by Gibson and director Jeremy Kagan. Unfortunately, the transformation was not successful.

    Valerie Harper is terrific but the direction is dreadful. It feels (and looks) like a bad music video with bad green screen shots and VERY Valerie Harper is terrific but the direction is dreadful. It feels (and looks) like a bad music video with bad green screen shots and VERY jumpy cutting, the editing ruins a fine performance. Clearly the director didn't trust the two best things he (and the movie) had going, Valerie Harper's performance and Bill Gibson's writing. Full Review »
