Cotton Mary Movie Review

Cotton Mary is a 1950s half-Brit, half-Indian woman in the colonies who runs afoul of her employers -- a stuffy British household featuring new mom Lily (Greta Scacchi). Lily's daughter is a sickly one, and Lily's a borderline unfit mother, so Mary whisks the kid off to her sister for nursing. Yeah, that's the plot -- and the tragic thing isn't that it's a frightful two-hour-long bore, it's that Scacchi is outfitted to look like a fat, frumpy old mom -- which frankly doesn't suit her at all.
