The Memory Keeper’s Daughter (2008)
My Rating: 5/5 STARS
MovieStudio Quote >> “Absolutely emotional. Heartbreaking!”
In this tragic drama of consequences, Dermott Mulroney stars as a doctor who can’t bear to tell his wife that their newborn daughter suffers from Down Syndrome.
Decades later, after claiming the baby was stillborn and surreptitiously charging a nurse to take her to a shelter for the mentally ill, the troubled doctor learns the girl has in fact grown into a bright, attractive woman whose reemergence in his life serves as a flesh-and-blood reminder of his deepest, darkest secret…and causes a fatal rift among the entire family. Emily Watson and Gretchen Mol co-star in this engaging Lifetime Original movie based on Kim Edwards’s novel.
