ORIGINALLY AIRED: September 27, 1998
DIRECTED BY: Michael Switzer
Reba stars as Lizzie Brooks, a young mother who falls into a coma in the 70s and wakens some 20 years later to find her whole life has changed. Her young daughter is now a young woman about to be married, and her husband has gone through his own changes.
Co-starring in the movie with Reba are Tim Matheson and Bess Armstrong.
This is a beautiful love story about a woman who was in a coma for 20 years and wakes up to find her husband and best friend are in love and her daughter is now grown. However, it does have a happy ending! It’s based on a true story and was quite unbelievable the first time I read the script. I got to meet the daughter of the woman that was in the coma.
This was the second time I was able to include my music with a movie which was a big thrill! We shot the movie in Los Angeles, and a lot of my scenes were of me in the bed still in the coma. Those were the easy days! :)
I loved working with Tim Matheson and Bess Armstrong. Scott Foley was in it too. You can see him now on ABC’s Scandal. So proud of his continued success!
