My Sailor, My Love
CAST: James Cosmo, Brid Brennan, Catherine Walker DIRECTOR: Klaus Haro
Howard (James Cosmo) is a widowed sailor living alone on the coast of Ireland and struggling to care for himself. His daughter, Grace (Catherine Walker), hires Annie (Brid Brennan) to help out around the house. Though Howard initially rejects this imposition, Annie's charm and gentle care win him over, and the two fall in love. Annie's large and loving family welcomes Howard into their lives, but these new relationships only serve to illuminate the depth of pain and hurt between Howard and Grace, who is facing challenges of her own. Grace's resentment tears at Howard and Annie's otherwise idyllic seaside love story. This windswept drama deftly balances a universal family saga with a tender and timeless romance.
Filled with sage wisdom and vulnerable people struggling to do the best that they can even when they are at their worst. It's a lovely indie.Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News
