Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Made for British television, Don't Hang Up offers one of Rosanna Arquette's best and least-mannered performances. She plays a New York actress, confined to her apartment by a physical handicap. David Suchet co-stars as a Londoner who suffers a mortal fear of crowded places. The two strike up a long-distance romance via telephone, reaching out but never quite touching. Don't Hang Up unfolds like a pleasant (albeit poignant) evening at the theatre; its success hinges entirely upon the superlative performances of its two stars.
