Project Description

The Sum of Us



Macho widower Harry (Jack Thompson, Breaker Morant, Star Wars Episode II) and his gay son Jeff (Russell Crowe, Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind) share a home, a close bond and a desire to find long-term relationships. Their dry spells seem to be over when Harry meets attractive divorcee Joyce (Deborah Kennedy, Tim) and Jeff meets local lad Greg (John Polson, Mission: Impossible II). Unfortunately, the closeted Greg is uncomfortable with Harry’s acceptance of Jeff. And Joyce, uncomfortable with Jeff’s sexuality, puts a strain on the bond between father and son. But Harry will always love and support Jeff. Especially when he reflects on having to separate his own elderly lesbian mother and her long-time live-in “roommate” to different retirement homes. That pain of losing her true love shows Harry that he will always be there for his son. A story of love lost, and found, in the powerfully entertaining The Sum of Us.

Adapted for the screen by David Stevens (based on his play), The Sum of Us is directed by Geoff Burton (Sydney: A Story of a City) and Kevin Dowling (Mojave Moon).
