Based on a novel by COLLEEN MCCULLOUGH, best selling author of The Thorn Birds, and starring the then 22- year old MEL GIBSON in his third screen role, Tim is a 70s Australian classic. Tim co-stars PIPER LAURIE as Mary Horton, a lonely, middle-aged American career woman living in Australia. She hires a handsome, young, mentally handicapped man named Tim to do yard-work. At first keeping her distance, Mary is drawn closer to Tim and as the weeks pass they form a bond. As the relationship deepens into romantic love, Tim's older sister Dawn (DEBORAH KENNEDY) resents Mary's intrusion into their lives and doubts the purity of the older woman's intentions. Tim won AFI Awards for Best Actor (MEL GIBSON), Supporting Actress (PAT EVISON) and Supporting Actor (ALWYN KURTS).
