Movie Info

Written by Richard Curtis and directed by Phillip Noyce, Mary and Martha stars Hilary Swank as Mary, and Brenda Blethyn as Martha, an American and an Englishwoman who have little in common apart from a tragedy that unexpectedly brings them together. Empowered by their friendship they form an alliance that takes them from their meeting in a remote part of Mozambique all the way to Washington--two ordinary mothers doing something extraordinary.

Critic Reviews for Mary & Martha

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

While Swank and Blethyn make everything they're in more remarkable for their presence, the movie plays more like a based-on-fact Lifetime flick than an HBO work of fiction.

Mary and Martha is fictional, but the characters have the blandness you generally find in docudramas.

Top Critic

Mary and Martha is a little film with a big heart. While well acted and artfully shot, it suffers from message movie traps, which isn't to say I wasn't swept up in its good intentions.
