Picks and Pans Review: The Sorrows of Gin
PBS (check local listings)
This is the first of three John Cheever stories adapted for TV by young playwrights (Wendy Wasserstein in this case). Mara Hobel achingly portrays an 8-year-old seeking affection from her party-going parents, Edward Herrmann and Sigourney (Alien) Weaver. That the gifted Eileen Heckart and Rachel Roberts play babysitters shows PBS's commitment to this powerful series.
