Saving Grace

93' - 2000 - Crime, Comedy - Dialogue: French, English
Director: Nigel Cole Composer: Mark Russell With: Craig Ferguson, Brenda Blethyn, Martin Clunes
Grace Trevethan is a cheerful upper-class housewife and gardening enthusiast who is blithefully unaware of business matters. This all changes when she learns that her husband fell from an airplane with a parachute. Her husband's numerous hare-brained schemes at getting rich quick left their accounts in utter ruin. Worse, if she does not raise 300,000 pounds quickly, she might lose her manor. Out of sheer desperation, she turns to her oddball Scottish gardener Matthew, who suggests growing pot. In the blink of an eye, the greenhouse is converted into the biggest marijuana farm in Cornwall. Soon, word gets out to the not unsympathetic townspeople, including the local doctor and a horror flick-loving Vicar. Unfortunately, a nervy French drug lord also learns of their scheme and soon starts causing trouble... (Jonathan Crow)
