Malachi's Cove is sailing with the tide.
1 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just watched this one just a few days ago. It's a sad coming of age tale about a young girl growing up in the late 1890's. Mally an orphan who lives with her grandfather Malachi (Donald Pleasence) try's to deal with her parents death on the beach in front of their home. Molly blames the town and her neighbors for their death, but the town blames it on her because of her lie's and other things she's done in the past.

The only way the two make any money is by selling Sea Weed thats washed up on the share. But the neighbors son trys the steel the weed from the family and make some profit on his own.

WHen Molly get's tied of this and goes to the town lawyer to stop him. But is shot down by legal mombo jumbo.

The next day a heavy storm comes in Molly is on the share pulling weed of the rocks when the boy arrives. She warns him not to get to close to the water but it was too late. He falls hits his head on the rocks and falls into the water. She races and pulls him to safety. Fearing him to be dead she races to her grandfather then the the boy's parents home. The boy's mother blames her for killing the boys and with a rage lashes out at the girl. The boy's father and Molly then go to the shore to find Malachi holding the boy and crying "He's still alive."

As the boy recovers at home his first word's are "Where's Molly?" His mother scream "Why do you want to see the girl who tried to kill you?" He reply's "No mother, she saved me."

The two end up on the beach at the end pulling weed out of the ocean. Now, not as enemies but lovers.
