Songs in Ordinary Time (TV Movie 2000) - IMDb

Now if that was all there was to "Songs in Ordinary Time" it would be an effective drama but there is more. There are various subplots including Marie's daughter becoming romantically involved with a young priest. But unfortunately whilst swelling the movie to 90 minutes these subplots only end up diluting the story although credit to director Rod Holcomb as he doesn't allow the subplots to become too dominant.

But as I said "Songs in Ordinary Time" is one of those movies where it is the actors who make it and in Sissy Spacek and Beau Bridges it has two great actors. They make their characters so real that you feel for Marie as she is innocently manipulated by Omar and Bridges certainly has the gift of the gab and the charm as Omar, in fact this has to be one of my favourite performances from Beau Bridges.
