Early TV movie about adopted children seeking their parents
5 April 2011 | by WillEdSee all my reviews

When looking up this movie to answer an inquiry, I was surprised to see it had no user reviews.

This was certainly a better than average TV movie, was well publicized when released, had two well known actors in the leads, and was directed by Larry Pierce, the director of Goodbye Columbus, the movie that introduced Ali MacGraw and had her best performance (a lot of us thought she could act based on it until Love Story proved us wrong.

Meredith Baxter is a young woman with adopted parents who is searching for her actual parents. Beau Bridges is a young man she becomes involved with on an identical quest. Whitney Baxter, the mom on the TV sitcom Hazel and Meredith's actual mother, makes a brief but important appearance at the movie's climax.

I haven't seen it since, but was pretty impressed at the time, no world beater, but nicely acted, written, and directed.
