Storyline

From the Irish countryside to London to New York and back again, Maggie reenters the world as a countess and shady art dealer. With her panache and charisma, she finds more than an auction, a rekindled interracial love affair, helpful relatives and a painting of great price. She finds more than she bargained for in the labyrinth and milieu of stolen art. Written by <WDRazo@prodigy.net>

Quotes

Maggie Sheridan: [Oliver has returned home &, hearing "Wild Thing" blaring, knows someone else is in the house: brandishing a cricket bat overhead, ascends the stairs, & more stairs, enters the bathroom. Finding his sister-in-law Maggie snoozing in the bath, he turns the bat toe-down. Maggie languidly turns her head & opens her eyes] Good match?
Oliver Peel: Rain stopped play.

Washed-up Blues Singer's Courageous Turn as Undercover Art Dealer
1 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The incomparable Helen Mirren is washed-up blues singer Maggie Sheridan, living on an estate in Ireland where she has been rescued from heroin addiction by faithful childhood friend Sebastian Stafford (a beautiful performance by Iain Glen).

When we meet her Maggie has been vegetating in semi-retirement on the estate in a guest cottage for some ten years. We see her finishing recording a demo with a (much younger) local Irish musician, and they are about to take a dip in the bath together when gunshots are heard across the grounds. It seems there has been a theft of paintings owned by the Staffords, with tragic consequences.

From there writer Cubitt has Maggie trekking across Ireland, England, and New York in search of paintings and criminals; and with the very reluctant help of her art dealer sister and brother-in-law, posing as an international art dealer.

Maggie is 50 years old without family or husband, but at turns remarkably charming, debauched, and courageous - a fascinating character. And what Cubitt has given us (and Mirren) is an unforgettable portrait of a woman who risks her life for those she considers family, and what she considers home.
