British actress Naomie Harris has been nominated for an Oscar for her role as a crack-addicted mother in the 2016 indie drama Moonlight. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some other roles she's played in her career.
Quite intense family drama about a New Yorker couple who visit the wife's home town. At 1st all seems well, then her brother's relationship is sabotaged by the father. The brother ends up committing suicide but is saved by his sister.
Meanwhile, hubby Ted is frustrated cos he suspects his father-in-law is scheming to keep them both there. He sabotages Ted's new job, and even suggests they move into a house nearby, and arranges for Ted to be employed by the town's newspaper press. Wendy doesn't believe her husband when he tells her that, and their marriage is threatened.
Finally, Ted convinces Wendy to recollect her past as to why she'd left home in the 1st place, and gets her to eavesdrop on the conversation he has with her dad. She finally believes Ted, and remembers her past. At 1st I thought maybe it was incest, but it wasn't. Wendy had loved playing the piano but her dad disapproved as he wanted her to be a doctor like him. So he had scared her by 'breaking' her talent. Watch it to understand what I mean.
A so-so drama...unusual ending compared with all the incest dramas.
