Review by anonymous (posted on 28-Sep-2006)

Its been awhile, so forgive any mistakes. Remember it was a good tv production, but not solid enough to hold up as a movie release. I found the idea very interesting, of a female executive at the top, who decides to change directions in her life. Finding life at the top unfulfilling at that point in her life, she decides to join a cloister in hopes of fulfilling spirital needs. While there she prefers to leave her past behind her, but others there are jealous of her worldly life which they never expereinced. She also prefers to remain in the background, and not call on the skills she has learned as a seasoned executive. Basically being a follower instead of a leader. But as the plot progesses, she is faced with decisions and compromises involving her preconceived notions of such a life, and the life she leads there now and how she intends on participating. I don't want to give the details for those who might wish to enjoy the movie for the first time. As I said before, it was good for a TV production, and I found the ideas presented interesting. DJ
