The year is 1991.A world war veteran has died.Then some secrets of the past are revealed.Ethel Ann, the wife of the deceased, never loved his husband.He loved somebody else during the war time.In Ireland a ring is discovered.Richard Attenborough, 87, is the director and producer of Closing the Ring.This is the last movie Attenborough has made.It will probably remain his last, since he's not in the best of shape, according to his brother, Sir David Attenborough.There is a very nice cast in this movie.Shirley MacLaine portrays Ethel Ann.Mischa Barton is her younger version.Neve Campbell plays the daughter Marie.Christopher Plummer plays Jack.His younger version is played by Gregory Smith.Stephen Amell is Teddy Gordon.Brenda Fricker is Grandma Reilly.Martin McCann is Jimmy Reilly.Pete Postlethwaite, who we sadly lost to cancer on January at 64, plays Michael Quinlan.John Travers is the young Michael.David Alpay plays Chuck.This may not be the best of the director, but it has its moments.The drama plays pretty well.So it's a movie worth seeing by Richard Attenborough.
