Witness Naomi Watts Early In Her Career
7 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second episode is entitled "Frances".Frances is a child a of divorced parents.She struggles with her relationship with them since she misses her father terribly and has had bad moments with his mother.This gets worse when her mother announces that she is going to re-marry.It only makes things worse and painful for Frances as there is evidently zero chance of her parents getting back.

This only makes her stay with the Santo Spirito convent wherein she is a border worse as she gets taunts from her other girls.Nevertheless,she supported her mother when she filed for marriage annulment but it becomes worse when the Bishop refuses to consent based on Church law.But nevertheless,the mother continues her plan to re-marry in a civil ceremony.She gets to attend the ceremony together with Sister Paul and Sister Catherine. Despite of being hurt,Frances is openly supported by some sisters and her stepfather and mother support her during her confirmation ceremony.Also,her new friends - Rosemary Fitzgerald and Brigid Maloney, - help her to cope with her mom getting re-married and everything ends well when she is in the school play that has a resounding success.

The episode was definitely something not in terms of the story or meeting another interesting character like Diane but rather witnesses a good Australian actress early in her career - Naomi Watts - who portrayed Frances.We get to see her charm and appeal in it as she gracefully carried the entire episode.Also,we witness practices of Catholics such as marriage annulment and the sacrament of Confirmation.Finally,Frances managed to be interesting despite probably of having no intentions of becoming a nun.
