In this slow, melancholy film, Biddy (Celia Bannerman) is a wise and loving nanny, imparting the lessons of life to her charges through poetry and homily, but after she grows older, the children she nurtured do not write letters or visit, leaving her a lonely, elderly woman. Engrossing at the beginning as Biddy and the children interact in a bygone, late 19th-century world, interest starts to flag a little when the woman ages and is on her own.
