Cast: Jean Simmons, James Wilby, Jamie Dornan
Jean Simmons starred in her first film in 1944, aged just 15, and quickly rose to become one of the biggest stars of British and American cinema. She played Ophelia in Laurence Olivier's Hamlet and the memorable role of Kanchi in the Archers' Black Narcissus. She starred opposite Marlon Brandoin Guys And Dolls, Burt Lancaster in Elmer Gantry and Kirk Douglas in Spartacus. She was nominated for two Oscars, she had one of the most memorable names and faces on the planet, and by the mid1980s she was washed up, forgotten and reportedly drowning her sorrows in alcohol...
She returned briefly to the screen in How To Make An American Quilt in the mid-1990s, but since then has filled in her time doing voiceovers for computer games and - as she happily admits - playing internet Scrabble. Interviews she has given since the year 2000 suggest a greater acceptance of her diminished status than in the 1980s but it still seems a shame that she has been given so few decent roles to play. Especially since, on the evidence of this low-key British picture, she is still one hell of an actress.
Simmons plays Hannah, a widow living in a large house on the isolated North Norfolk coast in the 1960s. A young bearded loner called Joe (Jamie Dornan) brings her marijuana which she smokes to ease the pain of an unspecified illness and also - as one suspects from the twinkle in Simmons' eye - for the fun of it. She and the much younger Joe seem to live in quiet contentment until Hannah's son Robert (James Wilby) arrives with his own children Kate (Ophelia Lovibond) and Sam (Toby Marlow). ...
