Keeping Mum - Delicious British Black Comedy
What would you get if you merged Mary Poppins with So I Married an Axe Murderer? Keeping Mum (2005). A little delightful English movie with a stellar cast including Dame Maggie Smith, Rowan Atkinson, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Patrick Swayze, Keeping Mum is in the best tradition of Black Comedy.
A country vicar who has lost his way, a lonely wife who is fooling around with her American golf pro, their nymphomaniacal teenage daughter, their bullied young son—they all get a little help finding their way from the sweet new housekeeper, aptly named Grace. It's a quirky film, great for a quiet night's entertainment. While not epic or earth-shattering, it's certainly worth the rental. B+
