This movie was in colour on TV (possibly a freeview channel at the time) within about the last 10 years. Itwas about a woman who was married to a high profile politician (I think USA) with a small baby daughter.  The woman’s mother-in-law blakmails her into faking her death by drowning because of an indiscretion.  The film covers the woman’s life from then onwards ending up destitute and on the streets.  Ill and dying, she ends up in court and is defended by her now grown up daughter, although neither knows who the other is.  Her husband realises who she is as she lies dying in court and realises what his mother did.  I thought the husband was played by Ken Howard but I cannot find it on his filmography.  It’s driving me mad!!!!!
