Keeping Mum

If you fancy a gentle, relaxing hour or so you could do no worse than to opt for the mesmerising skills of Rowan Atkinson as the vicar and Maggie Smith as the new housekeeper in this 2005 film, Keeping Mum. Gloria, the vicar’s wife is played by Kirstin Scott Thomas, whilst Patrick Swayze supplies the sleazy conman who plots to steal her away.

Grace, the housekeeper decides to take matters into her own hands, with surprising consequences. It is understated British humour at its best.

7 out of 10 is the rating from me, and I would certainly be happy to add it to the dvd library for £3.50. Have you by any chance seen it? I’d be interested to know what you thought of the dubious morality which is an integral part of the whole.

    You’ve lost me on this one – but then what is new when it comes to films and me?

    I did see this one on DVD but I felt the characters didn’t mesh or blend as they should. It was hard for me to accept the chemistry as presented.

    Loved it! I’ve seen it before but watched it again last week. Maggie Smith was delightful and the last shot an absolute hoot!

    I absolutely loved this movie. Everyone was perfect and it was hilarious. Great choice.
