Featured attraction

Just say "yes" to this breezily amusing British comedy about a proper upper-class matron who resorts to growing marijuana as a way of digging herself out of debt. At the start, Grace Trevethan (Blethyn) knows as much about pot as a skunk knows about Chanel No. 5. But her philandering husband has just died, leaving her nearly $500,000 in the hole, which means she will lose her house if she doesn't pay up pronto. With the help of her weed-happy Scottish handyman (Ferguson, of The Drew Carey Show), avid gardener Grace tosses the orchids out of her greenhouse to make way for her cash crop.
