A love story with a challenge. Based on the novel by the best-selling author Colleen McCullogh (the Thorn Birds), TIM is an Australian film which tells the story of the relationship between a handsome, young man (Mel Gibson), and an attractive businesswoman in her mid-40's (Piper Laurie). Tim is mentally retarded, but thanks to his understanding and loving home life he is able to move through life almost with a child s gentleness and content. When her gardener injures his back, Mary, Tim s next door neighbor hires him to do yardwork. Their friendship develops, first as teacher-student, then, as a more intimate relationship surfaces, the question of marriage arises. The responsibility of this love creates a challenge to be considered carefully. TIM is notable not only for the tenderness that permeates the film, but for the appeal and persuasiveness of two-time Academy Award nominee, Piper Laurie (Carrie, The Hustler), and Mel Gibson, star of The Road Warrior, Gallipoli and Lethal Weapon. An unusual love story. [description taken from cassette box]
