His & Hers

Dying to see this film, His & Hers, by award-winning short film director Ken Wardrop.
"From kitchens, living rooms, and hallways across the Irish midlands, His & Hers delightfully combines observation and charm to tell a 90-year-old love story through the voices of 70 women. This intimate gender and cultural snapshot explores a woman’s relationships with the men in her life—father, boyfriend, husband, son. Following sequentially from little girl to old woman, each character portrait is woven with the others into one perfectly crafted cinematic quilt."

It's getting rave reviews at film festivals and across the blogosphere, and it's won awards, too, including the Audience award in the Dublin International Film Festival, The Feature Award in the Galway Film Fleadh, an IFTA for Best Feature Documentary and the Cinematography Award at the Sundance Film Festival 2010, as well as Best Foreign Film at Michael Moore's Traverse City Film Festival.
RTE says, "You probably won't see a more thoughtful and touching documentary this year. The type of movie that has you leaving the cinema lost in your own mind, it really is a triumph, and deserving of the critical acclaim it has already received." From the Irish Independent review: "Funny, profound and lovely to look at, Wardrop's film presents a telling portrait of Irish womanhood that may turn out to be this year's best Irish film." Definitely seems like a must-see.

No news yet as to when this will be available on this side of the Atlantic, but I'll keep you posted.
