Picks and Pans Review: One Against the Wind
CBS (Sun., Dec. 1, 9 P.M. ET)
Judy Davis stars in this Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation as Mary Lindell, a real-life heroine who smuggled downed Allied pilots out of Nazi-occupied France. Sam Neill plays the first flyboy she aides.
The plot is listlessly conventional, but Larry Elikann's direction is evocative, and Davis is marvelous as a woman hiding her compassion under a veneer of brisk competence, a woman whose courage is as inexplicable and obdurate as religious faith.
