A Cooler Climate

Genre: Drama; Starring: Sally Field, Judy Davis; Director: Susan Seidelman; Author: Marsha Norman; Runtime (in minutes): 100; MPAA Rating: R

Sally Field and Judy Davis are wasted in A Cooler Climate, which amounts to an Afterschool Special for grown-ups about a suddenly poor woman forced into domestic service and the mean rich lady who hires her. This made-for-Showtime movie verges on guilty pleasure, especially after the preternaturally fit Field takes up with a sensitive-guy sculptor, but the ”Hey, we all need a friend” message is just too sickly sweet.
