My Year With Helen
It is an interesting movie in looking at all the political maneuvering occurring in New York, the schmoozing necessary to gain favor made me wonder if this quiet Kiwi woman would be suited to the role, she always seems to have paved her own way and I was surprised to see her in so much lipstick!
The most touching part of the movie, was Helen at home. When she arrives back in Auckland from New York, she spends her evenings cooking meals for her 94 year old father. Filling up his freezer with stews and curries so that he has meals to eat while she is away. Bless.
So I can't imagine that there would be too much interest outside NZ for this one. It was sold out at the film festival when it was first viewed last year. I watched it online through itunes where it was a 99c special. 3/5
