Eloise Hamilton and her best friend Sara want to control their lives, their families, and their future. Eloise's mother-in-law, Margaret, wants to control her early-onset Alzheimer's disease. Eloise and her husband, Mark, move their family to her husband's childhood home of Dartmouth, a coastal English village, in order to control how their children grow up. Sara remains in London and desperately attempts to exert control over her efforts to conceive a child. Margaret gladly welcomes Eloise and Mark, but she has secrets that will be revealed as her Alzheimer's progresses. Charlotte Strevens provides the perfect accents for the large cast. Verdict This introspective character study offers some thoughtful answers to the question of what people are willing to sacrifice for control. Recommended.-J.
