Picks and Pans Review: Color Me Perfect
Michelle Lee produced, directed, wrote and stars in this soapy two-hour drama that borrows generously from the 1968 Cliff Robertson movie Charly. Serving as a guinea pig for new genetic research, a mentally challenged woman is transformed into a genius. Lee handles the gradations of rising intelligence and confidence nicely. But she has made the mistake of also borrowing from Pygmalion. Reborn, the woman falls in love with her creator, a scientist (Robin Thomas) already engaged to his colleague (Susan Blakely). As tensions escalate, the jilted Blakely retreats to the lab, where she stares gloomily at a couple of chimps, and Lee, having mastered poetry, leaves a love sonnet on Thomas's pillow. Silly.
