“Rather than simplify the issues it raise or reduce its themes to soothing psychobabble or moral lessons, this movie does its best to draw you in with simple realism, which allows for complication, ambivalence, and other good things.”

  1. :

    The performances in “Doing Time on Maple Drive” are universally excellent, with McNamara and Sikking the standouts. Besch is also pitch-perfect as a mother who is loving on the outside, but as cold-hearted and unforgiving on the inside as was Mary Tyler Moore in “Ordinary People.” Brook and Loughlin offer solid support, but Carrey is a revelation, especially those who missed his stellar dramatic work in “Man on the Moon” and “Eternal Sunshine.” Made just before “Ace Ventura” made him a comedic superstar, his alcoholic son is tender and achingly true. And director Ken Olin handles everything with appropriate restraint and a total lack of exploitation.
    “Doing Time on Maple Drive” is a terrific TV movie and a welcome edition to DVD. Don’t let the subject matter scare you off. It is respectfully and tastefully handled, and for once serves a more universal truth than simply preaching to the choir about homosexual rights. After one viewing, you may ask yourself the same question I have for years: Why is William McNamara not a major star? You may be as baffled as me.
