Saving Grace ★★½ 2000 (R)

Widowed Blethyn finds out her late hubby has left her deeply in debt and in order to maintain her comfortable lifestyle, her gardener (Ferguson) suggests that she grow pot and sell it. Quaint comedy has the trademark quirky characters and gently bawdy humor you'd expect. Blethyn and Ferguson are fine, and it's all veddy cheerful. Lowkey approach lends itself well to the small screen. 93m/C VHS, DVD . GB Brenda Blethyn, Craig Ferguson, Martin Clunes, Tcheky Karyo, Jamie Foreman, Valerie Edmond, Tristan Sturrock; D: Nigel Cole; W: Craig Ferguson, Mark Crowdy; C: John de Borman.
