Editorial reviews

"...It's an actors holiday of a movie....The scenery and costumes have been chosen with great care and intelligence....Farrow is remarkably good..."
Los Angeles Times - Peter Rainer (05/13/1994)

"...Sly, witty, quietly ribald....This is a movie, like many of the classic British comedies of the 1950s, in which everyone is essentially nutty as a fruitcake, but we enjoy them so much we hope they never catch on..."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (05/25/1994)

"...The film reveals a certain delicacy of touch in John Irving..."
Sight and Sound - Amanda Lipman (05/01/1994)

"...Farrow displays a fresh-faced loveliness..."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (06/02/1994)

"...Bracing, witty....Plowright is at her peak in this sly Irish comedy." -- Rating: A-
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum (05/20/1994)

"...A bright, light-hearted comedy....The three stars run riot with their roles..."
New York Times - Caryn James (05/13/1994)

1994 Natasha Richardson, Joan Plowright & Mia Farrow

Review For: Widow's Peak (DVD, 2005)

As this 1994 film begins, Mrs. Edwina Broome (Natasha Richardson) has just moved to Kilshannon, a small Irish town, into a neighborhood called "Widows' Peak." This community got it's name because many of its residents are upscale widows. Curiosity about the sensuous newcomer consumes the neighbors' interest; however, she's a very private person who doesn't allow much information about herself to leak.

The most dominant, over-bearing, sinister, matriarchal widow, Mrs. Doyle-Counihan (Joan Plowright), is frustrated to no end because she can't find out much about Edwina, even though her son, Godfrey Doyle-Counihan (Adrian Dunbar), is already courting the highly seductive new neighbor, who's an apparent heiress his mother would be delighted for him to marry.

But, when Edwina & Miss Katherine O'Hare (Mia Farrow) develop an instant rivalry, a mortal feud between them ensues. Shortly thereafter, what seem like coincidental events start to appear as if Edwina's attempting to manipulate & destroy Katherine. Widows' Peak's about to become confounded by an unsolved murder. Trying to figure out both the mysterious heiress & the unsolved murder make for a suspense-building, intensity-flinging, amusing mystery.

The cast is stellar & really deliver delightful performances. Watch this one to see how a managery of great actors work so complimentary well together~

why I purchased Widow's Peak

Review For: Widow's Peak (DVD, 2005)

I do not purchase many movies but this movie contains enough entertainment for addional watches. I enjoy the foreign setting with it's humor, mystery, and beautiful scenery. The movie was casted well with some of my favorite classic characters. The plot is thicker than I would have thought and soon realized I was missing a lot of clues which required watching again. The story line is quite amusing but yet requires attention and an appreciation for the writer. You will be surprised by the ending so be attentive.

Widow's Peak

Review For: Widow's Peak (DVD, 2005)

This is a wonderful film starring Mia Farrow, Joan Plowright, and the late Natasha Richardson. The plot is interesting with many twists and turns, and has a surprise ending. If you like a good "who done it" you will love this film. I rate it a 10 out of 10.
