“A man loves his girlfriend the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.” Old Irish Proverb.
From kitchens, living rooms, and hallways across the Irish midlands, His & Hers delightfully combines observation and charm to tell a 90-year-old love story through the voices of 70 women. This intimate gender and cultural snapshot explores a woman’s relationships with the men in her life—father, boyfriend, husband, son. Following sequentially from little girl to old woman, each character portrait is woven with the others into one perfectly crafted cinematic quilt.
His & Hers is an enchanting and affectionate appreciation for woman in all her versatility. Award-winning short film director Ken Wardrop (Undressing My Mother, The Herd) has applied his signature style, marking an accomplished feature debut.
His & Hers won the Audience award in the Dublin International Film Festival, The Feature Award in the Galway Film Fleadh, an IFTA for Best Feature Documentary and the Cinematography Award at the Sundance Film Festival 2010.
