Greenfingers (3 stars)

leave a comment »

Greenfingers image” (green) thumbs-up for this affecting true-life tale about hardened con Colin Briggs (Clive Owen), who gets a new lease on life — behind prison bars — as an award-winning gardener. Wonderful in support are David Kelly as a prisoner chum of Briggs’s who coaxes him out of his shell and Helen Mirren as a world-class gardener who fears for her daughter when she falls for Briggs.”

Geoff’s Comments: Good fun. Some predictability, but bearable for the overall story.
