Tie-in to the forthcoming Fox/Sky comedy 'Saving Grace', starring Brenda Blethyn, Craig Ferguson, Martin Clunes and Leslie Phillips. Set in a beautiful tiny town on the Cornish coast, this is the story of Grace (played by Brenda Blethyn), a cheery housewife and amateur horticulturist, who is rudely awakend from her complacency when her husband jumps out of a plane -- without a parachute, leaving her with enormous debts. Having tried all other options, Grace's gardener (Craig Ferguson) suggests a solution: by growing vast amounts of marijuana and selling it on to a drug baron, Grace can raise all the cash she needs to get out of her sticky situation. Saving Grace is similar to classic comedies such as Whisky Galore! and more modern classics such as Local Hero. It is, however, the different characters in the film, such as the local doctor played by Martin Clunes and the vicar played by Leslie Phillips, as well as a magnificent performance by Brenda Blethyn, that make the film so funny and memorable.
