"Evidence Of Love" a.k.a "Killing In A Small Town" when it aired on CBS in the early 90's features an EMMY Award winning performance by Barbara Hershey (Beaches)The film is adapted from the book "Evidence Of Love" which is based on the true story of Candy Morrison who appeared to be an upstanding wife, mother and respected member of the community.
After an affair with her best friend's husband things spin out of control and Candy soon realizes the damage she has caused is irreversible. Confronted by her friend about the affair, their anger quickly becomes violent.
The film ends with a courtroom scene which has become all to familiar in made for TV movies. However, this film rises above such conventions with stellar performances by Hershey, Brian Dennehy and Hal Holbrook, a clever script by Cynthia Cidre and skilled direction by Stephen Gyllenhaal.
The DVD has no special features other that full screen presentation and scene selection. The picture quality is quite good and is beautifully packaged in a keep case coverbox.
This is feature film quality entertainment! Not your average made for TV movie!

I have never seen a made-for-television movie as riveting and powerful as this. Not only is the story, (based on real events) absolutely astounding, but the film offers a marvelous depiction of small town America in the bible belt and how very ordinary people can be led to do terrible things. Barbara Hershey's performance is one of the best I've ever seen by any actor anywhere. So finely nuanced and real. I will never, ever forget this film.

This is a brilliant version of the book "Evidence of Love," a true story about small-town repressions that lead to horrific circumstances. Brian Dennehy, Hal Holbrook, John Terry, and Lee Garlington are letter-perfect as the supporting cast. But you will never forget Barbara Hershey as the protagonist. Her performance is completely devastating, and it takes a subsequent viewing to appreciate just how flawless she is (she gets so deep into this character that you forget you're watching an actress). She won the Emmy and had this been a theatrical release (shoulda been, IMHO) she would have trotted home Oscar. One of the most exquisite performances ever filmed. She really delivers the goods, especially in the bone-rattling murder sequence.

Based on a true story and a book called EVIDENCE OF LOVE, this tv movie is made remarkable by the Emmy-winning performance of Barbara Hershey. She is utterly magnificent in the role of a middle class housewife who brutally murders her ex-lover's wife in a self defensive rage. Hershey superbly captures the many nuances of this seemingly normal woman who commits a heinous deed. Her hypnosis sequence is brutally painful and she pulls out no stops in showing us the hidden rage.

Brian Dennehy is equally good as the lawyer who tries to get her out of her terrifying predicament.

The movie is impressively done and once again worthy most of all for Ms. Hershey's dynamic presence.

Fabulous acting by Barbara Hershey and Brian Dennehy. I had seen this movie years ago on pay t.v........and enjoyed it just as much the second time around. The horrifying thing was.....it's based on a true story. Watch it though.......it's a very good movie. Excellent viewing.

I watched this movie several times and for some reason the only thing I can remember is Barbara Hershey's weird accent (probably because I've read the book about 200 times - I'm on my third hard copy - and my remembrance of the book blocks out the movie). So I decided to watch it and pay attention.

As I said, Hershey's syrupy sweet accent and whatever she is trying to do (putting the lift at the end of her sentences as if she's always asking a question, or for verification or permission from whomever she's talking to) is off-putting and distracting. I think she was wrong for the part. I never forgot: that's Barbara Hershey.

SPOILERS

The movie differs from the book in several ways: the name changes; Jackie Ponder, their minister, is totally left out (she probably wanted to be); and they have the murder happening in January 1980 instead of when it really happened, June 1980 (remember, Alisa just HAD to go to that swimming lesson with her OWN swimsuit?). Also, they left out the affair Candy had with another man, after Allan. When Allan takes Candy to lunch, he remarks that she's always up and has a good attitude. She replies that her family moved a lot since her father was in the Army, and she learned that you could not let people see you unconfident or afraid. That conversation did not take place. It's as though it's an excuse for the way she acted all the time, that she wasn't really that self-confident.

in the axe scene, it has Peggy swinging the axe right at Candy's head, and Candy moves out of the way just in time. I don't recall that in the book - I seem to remember the author noting that if Betty had really wanted to kill Candy, she would have actually hit her in the head, instead it seemed that she deliberately missed.
