Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
So, how bad has summer TV become? Well, look at it this way. Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says it's become so trite some TV critics have wondered what could be next -- possibly a small soap opera about a mother looking for a lost child in something with an agitated title like "Little Girl Lost"?
And guess what? The Lifetime network has come up with a story of a mother searching for a lost infant in a movie actually called "Little Girl Lost."
But this time, Sokolsky says, somebody may have made a mistake because "this film is actually good."
Based on actual events, it tells the story of a Philadelphia mother who refuses to believe her daughter was killed in a row house fire. She believes the child was kidnapped and spends six years trying to convince authorities to investigate.
Sokolsky offers special praise to Judy Reyes, who portrays the mother, and to director Paul A. Kaufman for holding the production together while carefully avoiding the pitfalls that so often trap movies of this type.
