The Nest Manager #2


Tim, in his early 20s, is quiet, dependable, and held close by his mother, Jean, who works long hours at a Sydney canteen and then does stand-up at night, talking constantly about what might have been (if she'd stayed in England, if she'd had no children, if her younger son Mark weren't mildly disabled). She gets enough club work to keep hope alive. They've bought a moving van, and Tim meets Jill, falling for her but finding the challenges of sex, his mother's prying, and his brother's needs more than he can handle. The family - as well as Tim and Jill's relationship - is on the edge of crisis, accident, or, in Jane's case, self-destruction. Are family dynamics set in stone? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Very Best Honest Film seen this year ! Loved it !
22 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is an unashamedly free promotion I am writing here JUST because I loved this film so much... it is one of the best one's I've seen this year, so in case you wanted a good referral for excellent entertainment that catches you where you 'live' , here it is.

It's Australian film "INTRODUCING THE DWIGHTS it is a feminist charmer (yes this is what makes it so great too ! ) , about a woman who raises 2 sons by herself with 2 jobs ...duh... but does so with such deep dedication good humor, honest caring and ingenuity...it's also about one of these sons finding his first true love...

sounds corny ? yep. but the acting is so sincere & genuine that my cynical heart filled with empathy and laughter as well, recognizing the Reality of this show (not like stupid TV phony set ups).

Reviewers (obviously male) refer to the film as a son's coming of age, male version of his sexual awakening INSTEAD OF focusing on the true hero which is the overworked dedicated Mother that never gives up on anybody! That is the strength and value (moral value) of this art piece.

the script is well written, funny, totally believable, and rides along on pure whimsy and is smooth, with lilting talk that is haunting and enchanting, and each actor is one I would give $100 to spend a week with myself, that's how much I liked each separate one...each actor was 'real' and a decent human being....how hard is that to find, even in films ? they are a family we might envy, like the one we never had a chance of even knowing as a neighbor...much less our own...we might even want to trade into this one...for a while anyhow.

If you see it ...well ..I guarantee it is so much more than it seems to be... if possible, take a chance. Go see it for yourself.

I am choosing on my own to tell everyone I see in next few days about it, because when something is Good, I want to be part of having it seen, known, & experienced ... and I really want this film to succeed. Independent films have a hard time, but deserve a better than paid-for-commercial chance. This is one. I bet I chose a winner ! You will regret it later when it 'disappears' in our over-commercialized USA if you do not see it soon.
