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.
Orphan Henry McFarlane just moved to the country, as promised to his wife Allison. Now his whiskey firm boss Jack promotes him to international sales chief, she changes her tune and refuses to be 'just' the perfect wife-hostess, so the marriage dissolves and both commit adultery, ultimately finding out about each-other too. Henry is even adopted as successor by his childless boss. A distant, US-emigrated relative passes desperately in search of a bone-marrow donor for his teenage son Oliver. Henry uses that as clever lever, but it backfires. Written by
It's a typical Rosamund Pilcher romance, but done with class. Antja Schuete makes her role, the only one that has any depth, perfectly credible in a winning performance. The other characters--the despicable husband, the handsome lover, the haughty but in the end human adoptive parents, the flirtatious secretary--all waltz through their predictable actions, their only meaning coming from the emotion in Schuete's character. A light diversion. No need to go out of your way to see it, but no need to turn it off, either, if you happen upon it.
