Stan is a 40 year old bachelor living with his parents and running his father's modest suburban barber shop in Melbourne. Life and love has seemingly passed him by and it is up to Stan's father to rock the boat and send him on his merry way. Stan takes a job at the local branch of the weather bureau, where he meets George, a cheery spinster who happily shows him the ropes. As romance blossoms, Stan's new confidence in life inspires him to read the weather reports on a local radio station. With his personal and professional life soaring sky high and marriage on the cards, it takes more than a few dark clouds and bad weather to dampen his enthusiasm. But when misleading forecasts begin to frustrate the farming community Stan and George's reputation takes a beating, requiring urgent resuscitation and perhaps some good old fashioned tender loving care.Written by

Stan and George's New Life is a delight from start to finish. Paul Chubb plays a single fortysomething barber who still lives with his parents. His life is deathly dull so as a solution he gets a job at the Weather Bureau(!), where he meets George. George also feels as though her life is slipping away and before long they fall in love and marry. In between are some of the most painfully funny observations of working life even filmed. Stan and George is well worth watching, and you can impress your friends with such an obscure choice! 9/10.
