A Very Serious Person

DVD - 2007
Rate this:
Jan (Charles Busch), an itinerant male nurse from Denmark, takes a new job with Mrs. A. (Polly Bergen), a terminally ill Manhattan woman raising her parentless thirteen-year old grandson, Gil (PJ Verhoest). Spending the summer by the shore, the emotionally reserved Jan finds himself oddly cast as a mentor to Gil in having to prepare the sensitive boy for life with his cousins in Florida after this grandmother's death. A deep friendship grows between these two solitary people. By the end of the summer, Gil has developed a new maturity and independence, while the enigmatic Jan has revealed his own vulnerability.
