Lonely Hearts is the film that established Paul Cox's (Man of Flowers) reputation as an aueteur. A tender comedy about the struggle to find valuable human connection, Cox drew on his experiences of loneliness and isolation as a migrant to create the emotional depths palpable in the film. But the contribution of famous Australian satirist John Clarke ensures a constant stream of comedic moments which prevent the feature from ever becoming maudlin.
After his mother dies, Peter (Norman Kaye), a piano tuner, meets Patricia (Wendy Hughes), a shy bank clerk, through a dating agency. He’s approaching 50 and wears a wig, she’s in her 30s and afraid of sex. Their friendship blossoms during rehearsals for an amateur theatre production, but falters when Peter’s desire becomes too urgent.
Wendy Hughes, Norman Kaye, Julia Blake, Jonathan Hardy, Chris Haywood
