Mrs Palfrey at The Claremont
A meditation on the kindness of strangers, this one gets you thinking about what is really important as you go through midlife and through the looking glass into the beyond: the far vistas of old age. A direction in which most of us are a little afraid to look.
Plowright plays a senior heroine who is a real, multi-dimensional person with a handle on her own destiny. Not just the garden-variety little old lady at the mercy of her children. A good one for a crisp fall day.
