A Thriller worth recording
4 June 1999 | by Tan52241See all my reviews

A beginning of a sudden uproot from her friends and school leaves Robin Garr(Evan Rachel Wood) less of being thrilled. With pleas to her parents, she decided to go to summer camp, where she meets a slighty over weight preteen named Amelia (Katie Booze- Mooney)whom both quickly become fast friends. A sudden drowning of Amelia at the camp's lake, causes Robin to go into a deep depression. School year begins and with help from a male classmate, she is somewhat grounded back into reality. While her mother(Meredith Baxter) is in Denver on a hopeful permenant family move, and Father staying at the family home with Robin in Pheniox, Robin meets an unusual woman named Dorothy(Diana Scarwid of "Mommie Dearest", "The Cure"). The two eventually become friends and Dorothy becomes a controlling freak when it came to perfection and neatness. Events unravel that Dorothy isn't who she says she is and hints of a mental illness start unraveling. The ending is well constructed and elaborate.
