Watch: The Secret Rapture 1993 123movies, Full Movie Online – Katherine Coleridge (Joanne Whalley-Kilmer) is a basically miserable and mentally unstable woman who is married to even-aged Isobel’s father, Robert (Peter Whitaker), who is the only one willing to give Katherine the unconditional love that she craves lest her inner chaos should wholly consume her. For any kind of peace of mind, she is consequently entirely dependent on him. As, however, her husband dies (of natural causes), Katherine quite instinctively transfers her primal need for all-encompassing care to his daughter, Isobel (Juliet Stevenson). As this is a serious intrusion upon her and her boyfriend’s private life, Isobel rejects Katherine, at first. She soon realizes that Katherine needs her attention more than her boyfriend, whom she then opts to leave, to go and live with Katherine in her father’s countryside cottage. The last scenes of the movie, not to be revealed here, raises the question of who, after all, were the more needful of Isobel’s love..
Plot: Upon her father’s death, a woman comes into emotional and psychological conflict with her young lover, her overbearing sister and her alcoholic stepmother.

Typical British TV drama of the early-90s
Tiresome British drama that has aged very badly. Rather commonplace characters are established, then the grenade of Joanne Whalley’s nasty widow thrown into the mix with predictable results. The look of everything is very bland and humdrum; a typical TV look of the day. The best thing about it was Julia Stevenson, who managed to evoke sympathy and interest in her character. If you enjoy family dramas and second-guessing everyone’s motives you may yet enjoy this.
A Beautiful And Moving Film; Leaves You Bigger Inside After You Watch
This gorgeous movie contains both fine acting and writing; real characters shown with flaws and beauty in equal parts; human primates as we all are. The storyline is simple but full of life-like twists and turns as different parts of each character comes forth and then steps back, only to reveal another side: that’s what we humans do. The grayish bland colors of the home cottage spell out the pain and numbness everyone who grew up there went through; yet to survive and finally face the trauma of “normal” societal behaviors; creatively and thick with color. Makes it a very rich powerful setting for becoming personally honest; among all the characters who come together and fall apart while visiting the old homestead.
Very moving film; no gimmicks, no special effects; no bang-bang shoot em up; great acting and people we recognize as ourselves.
