If you recall both HBO’s Winter Promo and the 2012 Yearender clip they showed us that HBO FILMS: MARY AND MARTHA was coming in the near future. Well, now a date has been announced via the Tease below. What you will see is two different landscapes; they must be North Carolina followed by Africa as these are the main locales in the movie. Take in the little tease and find more information about the HBO Film afterwards.
That’s why they call it a Tease; not showing much but hopefully raising interest. Now, how about a bit about the plot, you ask? Well, I’ll combine a post I wrote back on 07.23.13 with a synopsis from HBO to give a strong sense of what this movie is about. It is not a sensational tabloid story like PHIL SPECTOR or a flamboyant flashy biopic like BEHIND THE CANDELABRA but a character study of two strong women with a cause.
The two women, American Mary Morgan and Brit Martha O’Connell, take the eradication of the disease very seriously even to the halls of the U. S. government. We will watch this story unfold as these women grieve, bond and fight for their cause in this emotional 90 minute HBO Film.
HBOWatch will review this film shortly after its premiere on Saturday, 04.20.
