Soon after leaving the TV show Charmed in 2001, Shannen Doherty appeared in this TV production with her former co-star Julian McMahon called Another Day. I've never had heard about it before seeing by chance on cable.
The film is a good entertainment after a busy and tiring day. It story is interesting, despite its cheesiness. The characters make sense, and I was curious to know what would become of this suspenseful story. I question only its rating as a sci-fi movie. What would be the supernatural aspect in the story for me is easily solved by a psychological perspective. Someone suffers a loss and never recovers from it. Years after, the same person undergoes a physical trauma and is able to access facts from the past that she wasn't aware. Well, there's nothing sci-fi here, I think, only the ways how our minds protects itself in extreme painful events.
Writing about this movie today, I couldn't even remember its name - it was gone from my memory soon after I realized what I've written above. But it was a good choice in a busy day: a night with a simple yet intriguing story, with Prue Halliwell and Christian Troy (I didn't enjoy Nip/Tuc much, actually, but I think McMahon is more remarkable here than he was in Charmed), under the covers, happy to me home at last.
