Director: Mick Jackson Cast: Dermot Mulroney, Gretchen Mol, Emily Watson



Durmot Mulroney, Gretchen Mol, and two-time Oscar nominee Emily Watson star in director Mick Jackson's feature adaptation of author Kim Edwards' New York Times best-seller concerning a physician whose painful decision to abandon one of his newborn twins has further reaching repercussions than he ever imagined. Dr. David Henry (Mulroney) and his wife Nora (Mol) have just given birth to a newborn set of twins when the husband makes the heartbreaking discovery that one of the children has Down syndrome. Completely unprepared with how to handle the situation, Dr. Henry ultimately decides to send the chromosomally damaged child away.

Before the child can be sent away, the nurse intervenes - setting into motion a tragic sequence of events that will haunt the entire family for the following two decades.

The Memory Keeper's Daughter 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews. More than 1 year ago
The book was incredible - a gripping novel, as was the DVD. It is a raw look at disability discrimination, advocacy, love, loss, and family secrets. I bought a copy for everyone on my Christmas list. When I read the book, I couldn't put it down; I read to the wee hours of the morning and then stayed home from work the next day. The movie is equally as captivating. Watching the DVD will be an extraordinary experience. Enjoy!
