Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Hilary Swank stars as Mary and Brenda Blethyn stars as Martha, an American interior designer and British housewife who have little in common apart from the one thing they wish they didn’t. When malaria strikes, the lives of these very different women change forever. They forge a deep friendship and embark on an epic journey of self-discovery to Africa, dedicating themselves to the cause of malaria prevention. Beginning to rebuild their lives, they show how ordinary people can make a difference and inspire positive change in the process. Enlisting the help of Mary’s estranged father, a former politico, the two women beseech both the powers that be and ordinary people to get involved, realizing a shared responsibility to all the world’s children.
Plot: Wealthy American housewife Mary Morgan takes her bullied son George out of school for home education,including a trip to Southern Africa. Whilst in Mozambique George is bitten by a mosquito which crawls through a hole in his net and dies of malaria. After his funeral at home Mary feels a compulsion to return to Africa where she meets English woman Martha O’Connell,whose 24 year old son Ben, a teacher with voluntary service overseas,has also died of malaria. Ben gave his net to one of his pupils,believing adults cannot catch malaria. The two women are shocked to see the high death rate caused by the disease and,whilst Martha stays in Africa as a voluntary helper,Mary petitions the American government to change things. Martha turns up at Mary’s house unannounced and,helped by Mary’s ex-diplomat father,they address a senate committee on health spending,persuading them to do more to combat malaria. They meet with some success though a coda states that much more can be done.

Fighter
If people say and tell you this is inspiring, they are not wrong. Based on real events, this is really gripping and without knowing where this was heading (hadn’t read anything about it, before I watched it), I really was surprised after about 30 minutes into the film. After that it was kind of obvious where it would go, but the acting and the telling of the story is really good.

Not to mention the central performances. Even if towards the end you get a bit of a “cliche” speech, you’d have to have a heart of stone, not to be touched by it at all. You could also argue about the husband and what he decides to do and how things get “solved”, but after all that happened, it seems to be a suiting ending to it all

Something tells me…
Something tells me that if you are a middle-upper class white woman in her 30s to 60s, you will find this movie spell binding, informative, and touching.

I am none of those demographics, and saw the movie as typical “Africa is a country that needs our help” plea.

I need to offer no spoilers; the movie, was every bit unsurprising and clichéd as anticipated. Hilary Swank plays an nonredeemable negligent mother named Mary, who, stupidly takes her son to South Africa without doing…perhaps a quick google search? The Black Mambazo joke, the “does he have the flu,” the all around idiocy on her character’s part is NOT what any “regular” mother would do, and hence her endless boo-hooing and selfish behavior leaves no empathy. I’m supposed to give her a pulitzer because she ends up losing her son to a disease that kills people on a good portion of the African Continent??? Martha, is only mildly more redeeming. Whether I should feel sympathy for her, I don’t know. She’s just a whiny ole British woman with the voice of a stereotypical whiny old British woman. behaving like a whiny old British woman. Yeah her son was stupid himself, being such a wonderful white person giving away his medicine (oh how I wish we were all like that!), like everyone in this movie, he ended up dying trying to help those “poor Africans.” He just wanted to take pictures!! Poor baby! The strength they find in each other, is giving themselves more credit than they deserve. They “find strength” also helping these destitute, helpless people, who seem to just always be helpless and destitute.

Talk about Naivete. Apparently the only thing white people seem to be portrayed as in this movie are “unsung heroes of the African cause.” That apparently, only people listen to nicely dressed white people when it comes to the plight of issues on the African Continent. If, you really think you “learned something” about Malaria, you have no clue. Its a disease that isn’t in your country because, well, you aren’t disenfranchised or poor. Its really that simple, and they don’t acknowledge that in the least. You really think, the governments don’t know? You really think its a matter of knowledge? It isn’t. Its people who can’t afford the bare necessities, because of a long trend of being disenfranchised and indebted, then ignored.

And then she has the nerve to pretend she knows what the natives were going through?? Um, honey, you live in a pretty house in a pretty suburb, eat three meals a day, and if ish hits the fan, you get on a plane and leave. You have a giant memorial for your son, filled with what looked like every extra from every movie ever, the little whiny girl from X Factor, and spiffy new LBDs. And YOU know what someone who is living on a $1 a day is going through????? You know, I will re neg on my glaring Character reference. Hilary Swank DID play a very GOOD annoying, ungrateful mother. She had me convinced.
