It has been a while since I posted screencaptures and clips from a TV movie Mary starrred in and today I picked The Locket, in which she played Helen Staples, perhaps for a vicinity of mine towards nursing homes, but also because it is a great movie starring Chad Willett, Marguerite Moreau and the timeless Vanessa Redgrave.
Mary’s part was of a certain impact. She’s not the protagonist but brought a beautiful touch to the scenes, and a whiteness that touch my heart.
Enjoy the screencaptures and the clips!
A young man taking care of his dying mother is distraught and grief-stricken when she finally passes away. On the advice of his doctor, he takes a job in an upscale nursing home, and is assigned to take care of an elderly woman named Esther. At first Esther is a bitter, angry woman and pushes him away, but as she gradually warms to him, he discovers that he and Esther have much more in common than he imagined.
