Is a person to be condemned for one single mistake………
Margaret Colin stars as the principal figure in this story; as I watched it, I remembered her bit part in Adrian Lynes’s “Ünfaithful” as Diane Lane’s neighbor in a tony NY neighborhood.
This movie was surprisingly good, and Diane Stillman deserves credit for an accurate portrayal of class, crimes, and misdemeanors, which actually occur in upscale neighborhoods (perish the thought!!!).It is real but not over-dramatized; the audience lives through her accident, the pain it has caused;denial; and the ultimate resolution.
It is more than just a question of “what is a good person” as Colin speaks to her husband….is a person’s character defined by one single act; and should they be condemned forever because of their action?? The questions are pertinent; It is also amusing to see several cinematic references to Martha Stewart (i.e. the fussy, bothersome mother);Colin is reputed by her sometime friends to be a “perfect hostess, with perfect genes”….(gag); and a scene wherein Colin is confronted by police;(the “friends” also betray her, later)….
The denial and facades of American society are addressed; (Oh, murder doesn’t occur here; similar to the theme in “Ä Season in Purgatory”, by author Dominick Dunne, about the true murder of Martha Moxley; in Greenwich, Connecticut); Colin is aware of her crime; but consciously finds herself perpetuating the facade, until she finally breaks down;rent or buy this film; she is an underrated actress who does quite well in these roles.
when good people do bad things
“Hit and Run” is a shattering story starring the always wonderful Margaret Colin as a society lady who “has it all” until she hits a child with her car and leaves the scene. Hence the title. The tragedy is that she goes to call for help and returns, but is frightened away by angry passers-by who think the hitter abandoned the scene. This was made in the days when not everyone had a cell phone or there wouldn’t be a story.
Colin’s guilt and anguish are palpable and cause her to act so strangely that a detective gets onto her right away. Her lies sink her deeper and deeper into a self-loathing hole, causing her to make a bad situation worse.
This is a very thought-provoking story, and one can’t help but to feel this lady’s pain, wishing throughout that she would simply come clean.
As a TV movie, thanks to Colin and a strong script, this is a well above average TV movie.
