Lonely Hearts 1982
This endearing and unusual movie won the Australian Film Institute's 1982 Best Film of the Year Award. Everything about Lonely Hearts has a bittersweet truth to it. Peter (Norman Kaye) is a 50-year-old bachelor whose mother has recently died. He is a piano tuner, and his only friend is a faithful dog. Patricia (Wendy Hughes) is a shy, sexually repressed bank clerk whose puritanical and domineering parents have suffocated her spirit.
These two lonely hearts meet through a dating service and slowly bring out the best in each other. As an actress in an amateur theatrical group, Patricia begins to bloom as a woman; Peter is almost unhinged by his desire to bed her. Patience is all important — love comes in its own sweet time. Norman Kaye is very winning as the earnest bachelor and Wendy Hughes manages to be loveable in the end.
