My Mistress: the movie
I know the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer is all over the internet, but perhaps we can do better.
I just found this: an Australian movie called ‘My Mistress‘.
What starts as a beautiful and strangely innocent affair between a vulnerable teenage romantic and a French S&M mistress soon becomes more dangerous.
It’s a long hot summer for Charlie Boyd. He’s sixteen, his hormones are raging and he’s just found out his mother is having an affair with his father’s best friend. One thing takes his mind off his problems, the mysterious woman down the street who has visitors day and night, and has just advertised for a gardener. But she is forgotten when a tragic family event tumbles Charlie into a world of pain, a pain so intense Charlie thinks no-one can help him. He’s wrong. Someone can. Maggie, the beautiful French stranger. She’s a professional, and she specialises in pain. Giving it, exploring it, sharing it, all for money. So Charlie falls in love, and despite herself so does she, drawn to this troubled boy who takes all the pain she can give and uses it to heal himself. And as Charlie heals, he turns that healing back onto her, his Mistress.
I really hope it’s not all terribly damaged one dimensional people in dysfunctional relationships (it seems a bit like that to me) but to say I’m intrigued would be an understatement.
It premières here in mid August. I’m so very curious about it!
