Description

Sunday March 21 2010 at 9 pm ET 95 minutes Directed by Philip Martin An ITV Studios production Known and admired for her unorthodox, no-nonsense style, British Labour MP Marjorie Mo Mowlams political life included extraordinary achievements in particular the historic Good Friday Agreement in 1998, a major development in the Northern Ireland peace process just as her personal life was tragic. Julie Walters (Mamma Mia!, Filth: The Mary Whitehouse Story) heads up a stellar cast in this touching portrait of one of Britains most popular political figures. In a cruel twist of fate, just as she is appointed Secretary of State for Northern Ireland by the newly elected Tony Blair, Mo is diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour. As she struggles to keep her illness under wraps, her political career afloat and her marriage together, things begin to slip from her control. Also starring David Haig, Adrian Dunbar and Gary Lewis.
