Marianne Faithfull plays a devoted grandmother in Irina Palm (Strand Releasing)
Marianne Faithfull's music career has spanned some four decades and so too has her film career. She even did a turn as Ophelia in Tony Richardson's filmed version of his staging of Shakespeare's Hamlet . Yet her film roles have been intermittent and mostly small. But director Sam Garbarski has fashioned something of a showcase for Faithfull with Irina Palm (opened May 9 at Landmark's Ken Cinema). Faithfull stars as Maggie, a somewhat mousy and dull widow whose devotion to her sick grandson prompts her to change her life in very surprising ways.

I guess that part of this may be because the film was not originally set in England and none of the film's makers could figure out a more plausible way to provoke Maggie's desperate job search. This is a great post. Will be back to read more!
