Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
The film is titled "When Love Is Not Enough: The Lois Wilson Story." It is a Hallmark production premiering April 25 on CBS.
And no, you have not seen this one before. But then again, Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says, you might have. At least you would have come close if you've seen "The Last Musketeer" while attending the movies the Riverside International Film Festival is currently presenting at the University Village's Ultrastar Cinema.
Both films deal with the long lasting problems alcoholics can create for their families. And they would appear to come close on the quality scale.
Sokolsky gives top praise to Winona Ryder and Barry Pepper for their handling of the title roles in "The Wilson story". But he reserves top praise for the screenplay created for "Last Musketeer."
However, he does lean a bit on the screenwriters of both movies, wishing they had paid closer attention to that venerable of all script directions -- Say what you have to say. And then stop.
