Movie- MY SAILOR MY LOVE (5.00pm)

August 5, 2023

It’s never too late to love.

Waikato Times/ Stuff Graeme Tuckett 4/5 stars "Smart and insightful, Sailor is a winner."

Irish Times 4/5 stars "It would not ... be right to describe My Sailor, My Love as any sort of soapy romance. Jimmy Karlsson and Kirsi Vikman’s screenplay fleshes out a cluster of circling characters with great incisiveness."

The Guardian 3/5 stars "Beautifully nuanced performances underpin an interesting drama that evolves from late-life romance into study of family trauma across generations."

My Sailor My Love

Howard, an unwillingly retired sea captain, withers in his isolation. When his daughter Grace hires Annie as housekeeper, he reacts with contempt and fires her as soon as he gets the chance. But realizing he misbehaved, he asks her to come back. Annie demands his respect and starts visiting Howard regularly. Howard becomes devoted to Annie’s family - with a new positive and caring attitude. He has fallen in love.

Howard and Annie making off - My Sailor My Love

When Grace comes visiting over Christmas she finds that Annie lives there and has invited her entire family to celebrate. Grace burst into tears. How dare Howard open his home to these strangers while pushing away his own daughter? Grace gets a job in the town and wants to move in with her father. But he refuses. Grace writes a letter to Annie, telling her Howard is just using her for egotistic reasons.

Howard is not the person Annie thinks he is. Now Annie doesn’t know what to believe. Grace orders Annie to leave Howard. Grace moves in with Howard to take care of him. She seeks reconciliation but Howard rejects her. Desperately he tries to contact Annie, but in vain. Finally, he tries to run away but is struck with a stroke. He is bedridden in the elderly home. Annie visits and they confirm their true love for each other. When Howard dies, Grace arrives too late to be there with him. Grace is now completely alone and grieving in the country house. When she finally calls Annie to thank her for being with Howard, she breaks down, realizing she could never reclaim Howards’ love and affection. She pulls herself together and leaves the house for a new beginning.
