Purl, a veteran TV performer, imbues Lacey with a dazzling and complex personality, shifting between the supposedly sweet and loving aunt to the vicious and vindictive harpy. Purl is quite good in the role and elevates this movie to a higher status.
This 2006 made originally for TV movie is obviously low budget but you don't really need special effects or expensive sets to tell this pretty simple tale. It really comes down to the acting. I can't say I've seen any of the actors in anything I can remember from before with the exception of Linda Purl who I have recognised from a couple of other made for TV movies. As the mentally disturbed sister, she does a good job, as do the two actors playing the kids. The husband and his fiance weren't the best but the others carried the story anyway. It's an interesting movie in that they didn't go with the Hollywood norm of having young women in their twenties for the two lead roles. (Although the DVD cover implies they have done so). This means they backed the quality of their script. You often hear the complaint that there are no good roles for mature women, yet this one went with two and the movie actually was a little more realistic due to that decision.
Unloved and plain, Lacey is an "old maid" who lives with her brother-in-law, Richard, and his two children after the death of her sister. Aunt Lacey is a superb cook and a wonderful caregiver. However, lurking underneath the kind veneer is an obsessed and manipulative individual. Smoldering with hidden passion for Richard, Lacey will stop at nothing to get what she desires.
"Maid of Honor" is presented in an engaging and suspenseful way, and the actors/actresses are excellent in their roles. Linda Pearl, who portrays Lacey, brings poignancy and depth to a role that could have been two-dimensional, and the viewer feels a small degree of sympathy toward her. The scenes with Richard's little boy, Danny, are chilling as Pearl's character sews seeds of doubt into the youngster's heart. Linden Ashby is excellent in his portrayal of Richard.
If you're searching for a sutle thriller that probs the psychological depths of its characters, then please give this movie a chance. God bless.
good dialogue/solid characters/plenty of suspense. The DVD cover makes it look like a grisly
horror movie though. This is a well-directed movie that will keep you entertained.
