Summary:
A troubled British widow searches for a meaning to her life. 63-year-old Penelope Keeling,

daughter of an artist, lives alone and fairly comfortably in England's Cotswold countryside.

But at the outset of the film, Penelope suffers a heart attack. That brush with death moves

 her to reflect on her often embattled relationships with her three adult children,

 whose own quests for happiness have not been especially fulfilling. Confused

back on the memorable years that shaped her character during World War II.

Summary:
Fourteen years after being presumed dead in a plane crash, a woman

reappears--just in time to claim a sizable inheritance from her grandmother.

Set in the 1950s, the story centers around Paul Carmichael and his second wife Grace,

who have a somewhat peripheral relationship with their two children, 12-year-old Winston

and his 10-year-old sister. Enter Caroline--or a woman claiming to be Paul's "late"

daughter from his first marriage. Paul accepts her story that she never boarded the plane,

and used the crash to escape her shallow debutante life. But Grace is more than skeptical,

and the headmistress of Caroline's finishing school is quite sure that "Caroline" is a fraud.
