Saving Grace A widow discovers after her husband’s suicide that he has mortgaged everything they own and the banks are ready to foreclose. Faced with impending doom and little working knowledge except her ability to grow plants, she struggles to save her home. Enter her gardener, who is struggling to make a few marijuana plants grow in a hidden location and suggests that she use her green house to help grow the plants and sell them to make the money both need. He is wanting to get married, but needs capital. What he doesn’t know is that his girl friend is pregnant and thus fears that they will be busted for growing marijuana. While supposedly working, the whole village is well aware of the endeavor and is hoping for their success. When the plants come in, Grace takes the crop to London and tries to sell it to a ruthless, but charming drug dealer. Everything busts loose from there. Saving Grace
The kind of film Hollywood would never dare make
Saving Grace I just thought it was excellent and I still do. I’m grateful we’re still able to see different stuff from what Hollywood almost floods us with. Saving Grace is smart and enjoyable – those who feel offended by the marijuana thing better go see the America’s bride sort of movie.
Saving Grace also shows that a funny movie doesn’t have to be stupid. I was laughing my ass off during most of it but also pondering questions about what was the female lead character supposed to do to pay her deceased husband’s debts.
In a nutshell – a witty storyline with typical English humour and good acting and directing. You couldn’t ask for more.
