Audience Reviews for The Chalk Garden
We have seen movies about unruly kids before - kids who scare away governesses. Usually (like Sound of Music), the governess solves the kids' issues with some caring, and falls for the widower who hired her. The Chalk Garden is a little different. It is the grandmother who hires the governess, and in this case the governess is a convicted murderer. Interesting film.
Wonderful psychological game of cat and mouse. A tad reserved, not a bad thing in this situation, excellent performances all around.
