THE RUSSELL GIRL on CBS – Pictures and Promo

THE RUSSELL GIRL - Amber Tamblyn as Sarah Russell and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio as Gayle Russell on CBS

And my love of Hallmark Hall of Fame movies continues this Sunday, January 27th, with a whole new movie, THE RUSSEL GIRL. The movie stars Amber Tamblyn who plays Sarah Russell, a 23-year-old aspiring medical school student who visits her loving family to share some important news, but instead finds herself attempting to finally confront a difficult period from her past.

I have been a fan of Amber Tamblyn ever since Joan of Arcadia, and am looking forward to see her in a new TV movie.

In addition to Amber Tamblyn, The Russell Girl also stars Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Jennifer Ehle, Tim DeKay, Henry Czerny, and Paul Wesley.

Watch the promo and more pictures below, and don’t forget to watch The Russell Girl January 27th at 9 pm on CBS.

Synopsis: Sarah Russell’s rare visit from Chicago to her small hometown is a welcome surprise to her parents (Mastrantonio and DeKay), her 21-year-old brother, Daniel (Daniel Clark), and her former boyfriend, Evan (Paul Wesley). Sarah decides to withhold the true reason for her homecoming after an old conflict resurfaces during an uncomfortable encounter with Lorraine Morrisey (Ehle), who lives across the street from the Russells with her husband, Howard (Henry Czerny), and two teen-aged boys (Ben Lewis, Max Morrow). Sarah’s sudden presence has a debilitating effect on Lorraine, who rebuffs Sarah’s attempts to make amends. However, Sarah musters the courage to keep trying, knowing that she must finally deal with her past as a means of being able to face her future. It takes time for Lorraine to put the past behind her and to grasp that forgiving Sarah will not only ease Sarah’s burden but also her own.
