Countess Mary Lindell:
I don't know if you realize what it's like - bailing out in a foreign country, occupied by the enemy, not knowing anything, and suddenly being handed over to someone and thinking, "Oh, God, it's a woman! This is dreadful, isn't it?". Yet suddenly they felt safe. I love the whole lot of them. They were too sweet - too ridiculous, most of them. And I never even knew their names.

Baroness Mary Lindell begins smuggling downed Allied pilots out of occupied France after she impulsively rescues an English major from an outdoor café. Her son joins her Resistance operation, but her daughter begins dating a German officer. True story of a British nurse who twice won the Iron Cross for bravery in both world wars.
At a time when Hollywood's favorite actresses are girls instead of women, Ms. Davis could eat those actresses for lunch and still have room for dessert. Judy Davis' depiction of Mary Lindell gives a fearless portrayal of what true heroism is. When Ms. Davis is onscreen, all other actresses seem to fade into the background. Watch this absorbing film if you have tired of female characters that substitute eyeshadow for force of personality, giggles for guts. Forget the cinema junk food, this is the real thing. A Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation. Also see Impromptu for another fascinating real-life portrait, Judy Davis as author George Sand.
