We have a fully amoral "businessman" who maintains a separate household with a young harlot and her illegitimate son, while continuing to live with his wife of a quarter century, and their daughter. This quasi oriental pasha is struck down in his arrogance by a cerebral hemourage. This leaves quite a mess around him. You might feel sorry for the legitimate daughter until you explore she plans to live in concubinage with a hippie degenerate boyfriend. Well, there is at least one character, with whom you might feel some empathy, played by Joanne Woodward. She plans to help the illegitimate kid as if it were her own. Isn't there an old saying: "The sins we do by one and one, we...."?It certainly isn't a pleasant story, but as a moral parable, it has considerable value. There is into the bargain a very competent cast giving believable performances.This was shown on Lifetime Cable back in 1989. Just how accessible it may be actually is doubtful, but worth looking for if only for other example of Joanne Woodward's nice talent.
Richard Crenna is married to Joanne Woodward and has a grown daughter. Richard also has been seeing Lindsay Wagner on the side for eight years actually and has a six year man by her. Lindsay knows about Joanne, but not Joanne about Lindsay. Richard's cozy tiny globe crumbles when he has a seizure when testing tennis. I can't praise this movie enough. This was so well done, with respect to every character. It was very intelligently written and you felt deeply for both Joanne and Lindsay's positions. Thought was place behind every line spoken and was real to the person. No words were wasted. Scenes did not drag. Their thoughts and feelings were eloquently expressed here. Such sensitiveness and sincerity to a topics matter I have not seen in a TV film in a long time. This was a lot more emotional than I thought it would be. This gotta be one of Lindsay Wagner's greatest TV films that she ever made and is head over heels better than anything she made that was pure Krantz melodrama or one of her "victim" movies. By casting Crenna as the husband, you like him in the beginning but do feel he is the impetus of the pain that follows. The viewer finds out soon that there have been others before Lindsay. But you do feel the love shared between him and Lindsay. If you're looking for a serious movie about adultery with adults who are three-dimensional folks and where you see this as true life and not some overwrought melodrama, then "Passions" is for you. There is pain. There is deception. Folks have loved and given themselves and gotten harm in the process. This is life as true as it gets in tv films and delivers the greatest of Lindsay Wagner and Joanne Woodward.
