The plot involves a newly widowed and thus impoverished Blethyn who is a top gardener in her village. When her gardener brings her his marijuana stash for rejuvenation, they decide to grow more and sell a big crop of it to a drug dealer so as to solve her money problems. Seeing Blethyn trying to find a drug dealer in London on her own is worth the price of admission alone for outright hilarity. If the film maker had chosen heroin as the drug the movie obviously would not have worked. However, the use of marijuana in this movie is about as "serious" as its use in the old Cheech and Chong movies. I also doubt that English Cornish villages, as shown here, could in real life be this utterly charming and perfect but I sure loved the fantasy of it in the movie.

The venue of the story is a colorful coastal village in England. Though a little bleak, the surrounding country side is open and green, with wonderful vistas of the sea, and the village is a cluster of quaint, old, stone buildings along narrow, little streets. The title character, Grace, is the lady of the local manor and presides graciously over the social activities of her neighborhood. Her home is a gorgeous vine covered house in the midst of well kept grounds, a home she loves and which she is unknowingly about to lose due to the capricious financial habits of her philandering and recently deceased spouse. The story turns on Grace's outrageous plans to save her home and the naivety with which she pursues them, assisted or at least abetted by an assortment of delightful neighbors including her gardener, her doctor and even her husband's former mistress.
Grace is played with great skill by Brenda Blethyn. She's pretty and perky and just at "that age" where a women who had been financially independent for most of her life might find it difficult to start anew.Read more ›
