Miss Mary

Director: Maria Luisa Bemberg

British governess Julie Christie recalls her time spent working in a wealthy Argentinean household during 1930-1945 when the corrupt, conservative government changed after Peron’s rise to power. Slightly confusing in places as the events and flashbacks get hard to keep straight but it’s always engrossing— Bemberg throws her usual feminist overtones into the mix with soap opera melodrama for compelling results and Christie turns in another fine performance.
