Housekeeping

Writer/director Bill Forsyth (Comfort and Joy, Being Human) brings to life this tale, set in the 1950s and based on a novel by Marilynne Robinson, which is neither a sentimental nor simple exploration of familial and emotional bonds.

    Comments about Housekeeping:

    British director Bill Forsythe(Local Hero)directs Christine Lahti in a career defining performance as a slightly eccentric aunt of two young girls abandoned by their mother. Housekeeping is an ironic title in that Lahti's character is threatened by social workers who want to take the two girls away due to her lack of domestic skills. The film is a thoughtful study of a misunderstood individual who wishes to live her life and simultaneously provide for those who depend on her. Lahti's performance is nearly matched by the two young actresses she cares for. Recommended to those who enjoy a solid, thoughtful drama.
