Christine’s illness appears to have wiped any memory of inviting nanny Diana to help her. Nevertheless, Diana’s traditional potions bring relief to Christine’s suffering while her healing endears her to an initially sceptical daughter.
However, her husband senses she must be too good to be true.
Skillfully directed by Lorcan Finnegan with allusions to colonial exploitation.
The film wrestles with the characters' psychological messiness and supernatural nuttiness.
A film with striking production values and prescient ideas and themes.
