9émes Rencontres Internationales du Cinéma des Antipodes
Saturday 13, 11.00

‘Meet Jeannie Dwight and her family. Jean is a cook, loving mother, divorcee, and on the road to a comeback on the club comedy circuit. Her ex-husband John is staging a comeback of his own, hoping to get his life back to the glory days when he was number one on the country music charts. All three weeks of them. In 1975. With parents like these and a disabled brother, it is hardly surprising that life's not always smooth sailing for 21-year-old Tim who is shy, lives at home, and is a disaster with women. When the beautiful and feisty Jill walks into Tim's life things seem to be looking up. But there is another woman in Tim's life, one who will stand between him and the perfect romance...his mother!’
