Lifetime (Mon., Aug. 28, 9 p.m. ET)

Lorraine Bracco plays a shrink in The Sopranos; in this TV movie she could use a crisis counselor. Resentful of her business success, Bracco's sneaky, stay-at-home husband (Martin Donovan) files for divorce, gains temporary custody of their two kids and has her ejected from the house before she knows what hit her. To add to the agony, her mother is dying. It's a manipulative drama that doesn't know when to quit, but the lead actors effectively convey the pain and guilt of marital warfare.

Bottom Line: Crowded emotional docket
