Written by Richard Curtis and directed by Phillip Noyce, Mary and Martha stars Hilary Swank as Mary, and Brenda Blethyn as Martha, an American and an Englishwoman who have little in common apart from a tragedy that unexpectedly brings them together. Empowered by their friendship they form an alliance that takes them from their meeting in a remote part of Mozambique all the way to Washington--two ordinary mothers doing something extraordinary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent film about the plight of malaria 24 Oct 2013
By David H J Ashdown TOP 500 REVIEWER
Brilliantly acted film about the scourge of malaria and its devastating effect on millions of people mainly in Africa. Hilary Swank and Brenda Blethyn both share similar stories in their brush with the deadly disease. Well worth watching - keep the tissues handy !

4.0 out of 5 stars Mary and Martha get the message across 4 May 2014
This is a very watchable and thought provoking film. It is well acted and tugs at the heartstrings. It is a film that will encourage all of us to hopefully open our eyes to the scourge of diseases such as Malaria.

5.0 out of 5 stars Script writing at its best 13 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I thought that subject matter and the way that it was presented was very good.
A very important point was made in the finale.
Highly recommended and have brought a copy for a teacher/children to use
in an ethics clase.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a movie 11 Mar 2014
This was a fantastic, touchingly sad movie. It highlights just a few things that are wrong with our world, when just a few pounds can save a child life from malaria. We donated straight after watching.

Wonderful story believable plot, deals with several difficult issues very well. People who have lost a child would identify with Mary and Martha easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing but emotional film 15 Dec 2013
By Darren
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Incredible film, so very moving, had me in tears through out. Very well cast and some very deep emotions played out. Some powerful thoughts created by the story line and facts that are not always easy to accept.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful soundtrack 21 Mar 2013
I really enjoyed the television programme, I cried at the end when Mary and Martha were talking about their three best days, made more poignant to me due to my own loss. A painful but beautiful and important film. Please can anyone help by adding a review or a comment on my review with details of the music in this film especially the hauntingly beautiful song played during the opening sequence of the film? I would dearly love to have that music, it reminded me of some of the tracks on 1 giant leap.
