Resolved Question:

I saw a movie about a maid that moved to Maine(I think) and went to work for a couple. At first the wife of the couple gave the maid a very hard time. The maid met a fisherman in the local town where she shopped. The wife of her employer found out that her husband was cheating on her and had for some time. She and the maid finally became friends and she kicked her husband out. I think the maid may have been Sally Field. Do you know the name of the movie?

Hi, and welcome back to Just Answer.

Do you remember around when this movie was released?

Was it a comedy, drama, thriller?

Can you remember any other actors in the film?

Thanks for all your additional detail.

Hi again, and thanks for your reply with more information.

Just a few more questions, if you don't mind: do you remember the approximate ages of the maid and the couple?

Was this a movie shown in theaters and do you remember if it was nominated for, and/or won any awards?

Or, was it possibly a TV movie?

Are you remembering the maid having dark hair, being petite, and resembling Sally Field?

If it didn't take place in Maine (you said you weren't sure), are there any other locations it could have been? Was it definitely New England, and did it seem to be filmed on location?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

the couple mid 40s
