A Sad True Story, With Outstanding Direction and Performance of the Cast
In 1938, in Nova Scotia, Canada, close to Halifax, the greed midwife Lila Young (Susan Clark) entitles herself as obstetrician and receives single mothers for a discrete childbirth and further adoption of the baby. Many years later, it was revealed that she charged the women for the birth and charge the candidates high amounts for the adoption. The babies not adopted were put together with the sick ones to die and buried in wooden boxes of butter in a clandestine cemetery. These events really happened in a location close to Halifax, in Canada, in a period along the Second World War. All the cast has an outstanding performance, but Susan Clark is perfect. The community has accepted her job, and the story does not show Lila only as a greed woman, but also as a deranged woman believing in the importance of her assignment and using the name of God to justify it. Although being excellent, this disturbing story is not indicated for all audiences. My vote is eight.
