Angela Lansbury and Denholm Elliott make this movie glow green for IRELAND
24 May 1999 | by bettiemSee all my reviews

It would have to be a really bad show for these two stars (Angela and Denholm not to shine. I'm glad they worked together before Denholm died. Combining a woman's yearning a man's frustration, a great Bishop Robert Prosky) and the Catholic church with wry humor and even a pregnant cat makes for a wonderful story.
