Storyline

Mother rules the house with an iron hand and has such power over her daughters that they see themselves as becoming old unmarried, maids. Jodie has feelings for the local doctor, a man much older than her, for which her mother strongly disapproves. Beth finds a relationship with a male stripper in Bristol, but sees nothing in the future with Mother around. While both girls would like to be rid of Mother, nothing happens until Jodie sees images of H. R. Armstrong, the man who put the town on the map by dispatching his un-loving wife.

Dark humor with fine performances.
13 July 2000 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This is a funny and original story that gets a bit bogged down towards the end but finishes well. Jane Horrocks is superb, as always. Imelda Staunton, Brenda Frickers, and Jonathan Pryce do fine by their characters as well. It's the story, not the performances that get a bit stuck about 3/4 through.
