Love child

Streaming video - 1982

It's a story that made national headlines and was covered on 60 Minutes. Convicted and jailed for armed robbery in 1977, Terry Jean Moore fell in love with a prison guard and became pregnant. She then took on Florida courts in a historic legal battle to keep and raise her child behind bars. Amy Madigan made her movie debut as Moore in a performance called "riveting" by Gene Shalit of NBC-TV's Today and "fine and affecting" by Carrie Rickey of The Village Voice. Ultimate praise for the future Field of Dreams and Places in the Heart co-star came from Moore herself: "It was me there, it really was." Beau Bridges as the guard, Mackenzie Phillips as a fellow inmate and Margaret Whitton as Moore's atto...rney give strong support in a movie that rings with truth - and moves with its simple and direct power.
