Saving Grace

  • slideshow_large


Grace Trevethan's idyllic life on the Cornish coast is turning upside down.

Faced with her husband's untimely death, a mountain of debt, a former mistress and the prospect of losing her beautiful manor house - Grace decides to put her greenfingers to work.

Desperate times call for desperate measures and with a little prompting from her now under-employed gardener Matthew, Grace swaps her price orchids for marijuana. Together they convert her state-of-the-art greenhouse into what she hopes will be their goldmine and salvation.

Valuable as marijuana is, it's not a currency the bank recognises! So Grace leaves the safety of her Cornish village to sell her produce to the menacing underworld of London's Notting Hill.

The pressures of her new found enterprise begin to catch up with her, with gangsters, debt collectors and the police now in hot pursuit.

Will Grace Trevethan, fine upstanding member of the local community turn drug dealer - surely not?

Nigel cole's hilarious, heart-warming comedy drama Saving Grace, is an ensemble film based around a wonderful central performance from Brenda Blethyn and set against a backdrop of some of Britain's most spectacular scenery.
