Crossed Over
2002
After her son is killed in a hit-and-run accident, writer Beverly Lowry (Diane Keaton) sinks into a morose obsession with death. Eager to learn more about the mind of a killer, Beverly befriends incarcerated Texas murderer Karla Faye Tucker (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Their unlikely friendship takes the pair on an unexpected journey of healing. Maury Chaykin co-stars as Beverly's frustrated husband in this gripping true-crime melodrama.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

I don't know how I wound up on this weepy, ready-for-Lifetime-reruns movie about the final days of Karla Faye Tucker, but it wasn't very good, even by the standards of a TV movie. I guess all of the histrionic over-acting and the Screenwriting-101 cliches about parents mourning their deceased teenager are par for the course, but the movie just kept going and going: It seemed to be resolved in the first thirty minutes, then came up with another plot and resolved that after another thirty minutes, but it still had another thirty to go. That's the way the real story went I suppose, but it didn't make for a compelling movie.
