Picks and Pans Review: Summer of My German Soldier
NBC (8 p.m. ET)
This TV movie is refreshing even on second viewing. Kristy (Family) McNichol is superb as the misunderstood daughter of the only Jewish couple in a Southern town in 1944. She befriends escaped German POW Bruce Davison, and Esther Rolle is equally fine as the domestic who comforts her. The production details are a level above the TV standard, and the drama captures the feel of its time and place. (Repeat)
