Movie Info

Cynthia (Molly Parker) is tired of a relationship with love but no money, so she looks for work to support herself and her ne'er-do-well lover, Buck (Aden Young). She gets a job caring for cancer sufferer Eleanor (Joely Richardson), and begins to think the ill woman is in need of a lover. She then enlists Buck to seduce her, hoping that he will end up in her will and their financial problems will come to an end. What she doesn't expect is the jealousy she feels about the affair she created.

Audience Reviews for In a Private Garden

  • Aug 07, 2006
    [font=Century Gothic]"In the Shadows" begins with Cynthia(Molly Parker) finally having had it with her boyfriend Buck's(Aden Young) drinking and drug use and walks out on him. After losing her waitressing job, Cynthia goes to work as an aide for Eleanor(Joely Richardson), a wealthy and lonely young woman who is dying of cancer. Soon after, Cynthia comes across Buck living on the streets and gets him a job as a gardener for Eleanor but introduces him as her half-brother. Cynthia hatches up a scheme where Buck is to seduce Eleanor in order to inherit her money...[/font] [font=Century Gothic]"In the Shadows" is a not quite predictable movie that ably balances between being cynical and maudlin. The excellent performances of Parker and Richardson raise the film above the routine.[/font]
