NotesThe wonderful Peggy Ashcroft (who was 81 at the time and died in 1991) plays Lillian who has been in a mental hospital for 60 years. She goes to live in the home of her nephew. Living with his family we learn what led to her institutionalisation. I recommend this on the strength of the actors and director.
