A minor teleplay, perhaps, but Alastair Sim and Jeremy Brett make it worthwhile
6 February 2008 | by (San Antonio, Texas) – See all my reviews

Alastair Sim was 75 when he starred in The Prodigal Daughter, sharing top billing with Jeremy Brett. It's the story of three Catholic priests and what happens when a young housekeeper is hired for them. Sim is the older parish priest, a man who is wise in the ways of the world and cooks terribly. Brett is a younger priest who undergoes a crises of his calling. While Brett wrestles with his nature and his conscience, Sim provides the foundation for Brett's decision, and does so without prejudging. There's not a great deal that can be explored in less than an hour, but both men are such accomplished actors they make the hour an interesting one. It's a solid teleplay for what it sets out to do. Once more Sim is the man you wind up watching despite a fine performance by Brett.
