Mary and Martha
Philip Noyce directs Hilary Swank and Brenda Blethyn in this film from Richard Curtis' screenplay. The tale itself is about two mothers both of whom have lost their sons to malaria. James Woods, Frank Grillo, Ian Redford, and Stephanie Faracy also star. As you assuredly know, HBO has a long track record of putting out compelling, wonderful, original dramas. We can't say that "Mary and Martha" will, unquestionably, live up to all those other works, but it certainly has the potential to do just that.
