Editorial Reviews

Carol Burnett, one of America’s all-time entertainment greats, is teamed with her real-life daughter in HOSTAGE - a tense mystery-melodrama.

Bonnie Lee (Carrie Hamilton) is a young girl who is falsely imprisoned for attempted murder only to escape after receiving death threats from her deranged father (Leon Russom). Martha (Carol Burnett) is a lonely widow who is caught in the cross hairs and taken hostage by Bonnie in order to draw attention to her plight. The two soon find themselves sharing a strange bond on the run from the police as they track down Bonnie’s biological mother - the only one who can prove her innocence.

Emmy® Award Winner* Carol Burnett gives a brilliant performance in a dramatic turn as the emotionally shattered widow, and with chemistry to spare, her late daughter Carrie Hamilton proves the perfect counter point. HOSTAGE crackles with drama, brims with mystery and is not to be missed for the first time on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Carol Burnett TV Movie! April 7, 2013
Format:DVD
Carol Burnett stars in this 1988 TV movie as a lonely widow with an unsympathetic daughter (played by Annette Bening.) One day while shopping, Carol is abducted at gunpoint by an escaped convict (played by Carol's real-life daughter, Carrie Hamilton.) Carrie takes Carol to the bank, and forces her to withdraw $1,000.00. Then she makes Carol drive her to New York City. The second half of the movie was really shot in NYC, which adds to the authenticity of the movie. Eventually Carol starts to feel sympathy for the young woman who is holding her hostage.

I HIGHLY recommend this movie to Carol Burnett fans, and to anyone who likes TV movies or Lifetime movies!

I've waited years for this film to come out on DVD. Carol Burnett is at her best, and her daughter in the film was her actual real life daughter, who sadly died of cancer not that long after the film was made. Great film.
