SAVING GRACE - PHILLIPS RYAN

SAVING GRACE - PHILLIPS RYAN

As the only daughter of a successful businesswoman, Grace grew up with nothing but the ... more

best. Sheltered by her single mother and educated
in an exclusive private school in Detroit, Grace
was not ready for the harsh realities of an
unforgiving world. Grace's naiveti coupled with
her desire to experience life on her own terms
leads her down a path of emotional devastation and
physical abuse. Through a chance encounter Grace
meets Mike, a successful design artist who
introduces her to a relationship very different
from her usual one-night-stands and affairs with
married men. Things take a turn for the worse
however when Grace's roommate walks in on her and
her married personal trainer in their apartment.
This betrayal tears apart Mike and Grace's romance
and shatters the trust and friendship between
Grace and Trina. In the midst of torn
relationships and a life-shattering loss, Grace is
left with no one to turn to except the God she
thought had long since abandoned her.

A sweet, silly and sincere comedy, Saving Grace resembles a Cheech and Chong pothead ... more

comedy, only instead of two scruffy lowlifes the
film is about an aimless Scottish gardener and a
middle-aged widow with a green thumb. Grace
(Brenda Blethyn of Secrets and Lies and Little
Voice) has just discovered that her recently
deceased husband has left her with an enormous
debt when her gardener Matthew (Craig Ferguson,
The Big Tease) asks her to help him tend to his
small, personal-use marijuana crop. Grace soon
realises that they can turn her greenhouse into a
hydroponics laboratory and turn out a profitable
crop--if only they can keep the local constables
at bay and then find a dealer to sell the stuff.
Saving Grace has well-developed characters,
intelligent dialogue, a charming and capable cast
and clean, clear direction. But at heart it's
still a marijuana comedy, with most of its
funniest moments coming from the silly, stoned
behaviour of elderly ladies and others. Nothing
wrong with that, and Blethyn and Ferguson give the
film a strong anchor. The ending goes a little
over the top, but most of the film is
well-grounded in genuine human behaviour. A
sub-plot about Matthew's girlfriend's pregnancy is
treated with respect and integrity. --Bret Fetzer,

Set in picturesque Cornwall, Nigel Cole makes his big-screen film direction debut with this picture.

SAVING GRACE - THE MOVIE

AdvantagesBritish Humour at its best.

Disadvantagesnone

"...lot to do with her saving her home, plants that are of a somewhat illegal nature. The interaction of village people, the village priest, doctor, and bobby are so funny, you have to see this film to appreciate it. A gentle film that brings British comedy into modern living in a way that makes me think of all things British. Do watch this movie. The actual price I paid was eight pounts from E'bay on DVD, but it was the best eight pounds that ..." Read review

You'll Have to Locate her First

AdvantagesWasted Old Ladies

DisadvantagesLacks some sort of je ne sais quoi

"The plot: Blethyn's husband dies and leaves her with huge debts. She collaborates with the gardener, and the two of them hatch a smokin' plot to rescue her house and lifestyle from the ruthless debt collectors. The confusion: I found it really difficult to get into the story as I was distracted by the confusion as to where the is set. The ecletic mix of Irish, Scottish, London and Cornish accents are totally confusing. And that's just when the ..." Read review

Product Information for "Saving Grace (DVD)" »

DVD Description

SAVING GRACE is genuinely funny British comedy about Grace, a recently widowed woman who risks losing her wonderful estate and beautiful garden because of the huge debts her husband left when he died. To cure her financial ailments, she uses her horticultural talent to raise--and then sell--marijuana plants. But, when Grace gets herself caught between the police, some serious London drug pushers, and the real estate agents who have a claim on the estate, audiences will certainly turn a blind eye to the law in order to "save Grace."
