Following the tragic shooting death of her fiancé, attractive blonde Andrea Roth (as Celeste Dupont) takes a psychiatric position at the remote "Millburn Institute". The newly arrived doctor is told no Internet service exists and the place is too distant for cell phones. Uh-oh. This should have driven Ms. Roth out to her car for a quick retreat, but we're already too late in the story for that as Roth is shown to her room in the area reserved for the insane. Informed she is there as a patient, not a doctor, Roth makes some futile attempt to escape. When they fail, she tries to play along with the doctors and figure out how she ended up being "Committed". Roth's case is given to bedside mannerly Richard Burgi (as Desmond Moore) and the mystery deepens... There are a couple of startling moments and some suspense in "Committed". Director Norma Bailey, editor Ron Wisman and photographer Michael Storey contribute some good work. Roth is okay as the confused heroine, but her heightened eyebrows are sometimes distracting. Featured players making the most of their screen time are handsome young rape fantasy Sebastian Pigott (as Bobby Gow) and beautifully grayed poet Linda Thorson (as Isadora), who first impressed in as sexy TV "Avenger" Tara King. Lower key, but just as much fun are headmaster Peter MacNeill (as Quille), absent-minded Liisa Repo-Martell (as Donneymeade) and other assorted cuckoos. This TV movie is genuinely intriguing, but falters significantly in the final 15 minutes. Committed (4/17/11) Norma Bailey ~ Andrea Roth, Richard Burgi, Sebastian Pigott, Linda Thorson
