Woodard and Paquin star in 'Member of the Wedding'

Alfre Woodard and Anna Paquin (a Best Supporting Actress Oscar-winner for "The Piano") shine in one of USA's best made-for-cable movies to date, an adaptation of Carson McCullers' novel "Member of the Wedding" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., USA).

The story pits Paquin's character, a 12-year-old Georgia girl, against the world she's been brought up in. The girl can't decide whether she's a beauty (as her family suggests) or a freak who belongs in a circus. When her brother gets married, she decides the only thing to do is get out of town by leaving with him on his honeymoon, an idea that meets with a predictably cool reception.

Woodard is the housekeeper who serves as her emotional bulwark, who alone understands that only the girl can pull herself through this.
