Storyline

Hard as nails 22 year old thief and prostitute VICTORIA WALKER is given a tough choice by a judge: get a legal job or go to jail. Victoria's bad attitude and demeanor slams the door on all her job opportunities except for a helpmate position with a wealthy and elderly Palm Beach woman. Althea Jaffery, age 77, takes an unusual liking to Victoria and hires her on the spot beginning a relationship between two women that are worlds apart. The unconditional love of Althea peels away the hardness in Victoria, allowing her to reveal her dark and secret past, while the persistent and confrontational Victoria discovers that Althea has been hiding from a dark and secret past as well. These two women, once with little in common, find themselves at the same point in their lives; discovering that a key to life is the power of forgiveness. Written by Dan Chinander

Excellent
1 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see this movie in a private screening. I laughed, I cried and fell in love with the characters. Funny, poignant and beautifully acted. See Hiding Victoria because it is one of the most lovely coming of age stories of our time and because it is unmissable and unforgettable. Eloquently written, produced and directed, we see a troubled teen evolve in front of our eyes. Anita Gillette gives an award winning performance as the big hearted Althea. Margo Harshman as Victoria is hard to take at first but it doesn't take long until you feel her pain and struggle right along side her. This is a movie to watch more than once!
