Movie Info

Based on the best-selling novel by Anita Shreve, the made-for-TV The Pilot's Wife also bears traces of the old Lana Turner movie Another Time, Another Place. Upon being told that her pilot husband has been killed in a crash, Kathryn Lyons (Christine Lahti) is in no mood to deal with the accusation that her late spouse carelessly caused the accident. Accompanied by another pilot named Robert (Campbell Scott), Kathryn heads to the coast of Ireland to conduct her own investigation. She soon learns to her ever-mounting horror that her "perfect" husband had apparently been carrying on a double life. Filmed on location in Ireland, The Pilot's Wife was originally slated to air a few days after September 11, 2001, but for obvious reasons CBS chose to shelve the film until April 14, 2002.

mislaid in a convoy of motionless direction, lacklustre plotting and a dappled, mystifying amalgamation of sequences.

Christine is top drawer as always but the script is dramatically weak.

Pretty good for a Lifetime movie. I thought Christine Lahti and Alison Pill did a good job of portraying a mother and daughter full of grief and confusion. Many have rated this poorly but it kept my interest for the full 90 minutes.
