    Scene by scene, "Mrs. Harris" overcomes the rote nature of true crime stories.

    The tone here can be offputtingly strange: brittle, flinty yet over the top. [20 Feb 2006, p.37]
  3. Their dance of love and rejection, of giddiness and bitterness, is a warped waltz, and Kingsley and Bening clearly relish every step.

    Excellent acting, writing, directing. Complicated, funny, asks difficult questions. Should have won all the tv movie awards this year.

    Refreshingly complex. Brilliant performances. This film does not spell out the motivations and intentions of its characters: the viewer must think and wonder while watching. If only more films would assume that the viewer is up to that task! Full Review »
