Question: I saw the first part of a movie a few years ago and missed the second part. I don't know the name and would like to know if it is available to rent. It was a case of a husband beating his wife and the wife disappearing. The wife's sister believed he murdered her. Part 1 ended with his parents sitting upright in his bed at night, seeing the stuff on the walls that the police had put there to show blood. Please help me with the name. I'd like to finish watching it. Anne P.
Televisionary: You're thinking of CBS' In a Child's Name, a two-part 1991 CBS TV-movie that was based on a true story. It featured Valerie Bertinelli as a woman who, after her brother-in-law (Michael Ontkean) murders her sister (Karla Tamburrelli), fights her brother-in-law's parents (David Huddleston, Louise Fletcher) for custody of her nephew.
It's no longer available on home video, but if you do some searching on some online auction sites, you may be able to find a used copy. (Lifetime reruns it periodically, too, and if you're lucky, your local video store may have an old tape around as well.)
