Murderers and thieves get rehabilitated by Mother Nature in this true story from writer/director Joel Hershman. Clive Owen stars as an unsociable inmate who gets transferred to the Club Med of prisons with its tea and biscuits and non-existent security system. The hard-nosed loner prefers scrubbing toilets to joining in Christmas parties wearing a festive paper hat. However, thanks to the persistence of a willy-nilly roommate (David Kelly) and a crop of miracle violets, the governor sets the reluctant convict and his fellow prisoners on a horticultural endeavor, allowing them to meet the prima donna flower guru, compete in the world-renowned Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and gain life-altering insight into desires, direction and daffodils. This inspirational comedy blossoms as the cream of the crop.
Director: Joel Hershman
Cast: Clive Owen, Helen Mirren, David Kelly and Warren Clarke
