Niall Johnson's comedy Keeping Mum concerns the family of a vicar who are beset by a variety of problems. Reverend Walter Goodfellow (Rowan Atkinson) is a well-meaning but hapless religious figure in his town. His son, Petey, is a wimp, forever terrorized at school. His daughter, Holly, enjoys the company of a variety of different boyfriends. Wife Gloria (Kristin Scott Thomas) has had enough of her husband and is considering leaving him for a golf teacher (Patrick Swayze). The family starts to come back together after hiring housekeeper Grace (Maggie Smith), a woman who knows a thing or two about keeping secrets. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
Unexpectedly funny, a dark sort murder mystery movie. Maggie Smith plays a housekeeper with a terrible secret. The family of a vicar are the beneficiaries of this woman's unexpected influence. The movie was hilarious, but in a low key "chuckling" kind of way. This is a real unusual kind of movie that I'm sure most will like.
Just my "cup of tea." Should I put on the kettle? I loved this movie. The characters were quirky and entertaining. There were unexpected twists and turns, some really good dialoge and a good ending.. I would highly recommend it.
