- 1 hr 30 min
"The Mermaid Chair" is a 90 minute length Lifetime channel original movie adaptation of Sue Kidd's novel. The film takes place on Egret Island and focuses on the relationship between Jessie, a married woman in her 40s, and Brother Thomas, a monk of the Benedictine order who has not yet taken his final vows. Jessie is forced to re-examine her life, her boring-yet-safe marriage to Hugh Sullivan, and her strained relationship with her mother. Jessie wrestles over whether a comfortable relationship can coexist with a relationship built upon sheer, unadulterated passion, as well as if it would be worth it.
