Flashback Friday-The Governess

Sometimes, in life, it is the challenges the define us.

In the 1998 movie, The Governess, Rosina da Silva (Minnie Driver) is the daughter of a privileged Sephardi  Jewish family. When her father dies, she takes a position as a governess in the home of Charles Cavendish (Tom Wilkinson).  Mr. Cavendish’s wife (Harriet Walter) takes little notice of her husband’s work.  Rosina, under the name of Mary Blackchurch, has an affair with her employer while his teenage son, Henry (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) also starts to look differently at his sister’s governess.

I enjoy this movie. It is quiet, simple British indie drama was a top notch cast and a story that draws the audience in.

Do I recommend this movie? Yes.
