Margaret's Museum

Tired of renting movies about cops whose wives ceaselessly complain about the stress of being married to a walking bull’s-eye? Just for variety’s sake, here’s one about a miner’s wife who ceaselessly complains about the stress of being married to a walking rubble magnet. Set in Nova Scotia during the 1950s, Margaret’s Museum is the melodramatic tale of Margaret (Helena Bonham Carter), who weds a rugged bagpipe aficionado (Clive Russell) on the condition that he stay out of the local mines. There’s no other work to be found, so back underground he goes. Events build to a memorably gruesome denouement, but the journey there covers a lot of ground that’s already been exceedingly well mined. C
