A young, gorgeous Mel Gibson stars in gentle romantic drama Tim about a slow-witted young man who develops a friendship with an older woman who hires him to work around her house and yard. Their seemingly odd relationship causes the woman’s neighbours to suspect there is more going on than meets the eye. Based on a novel by the author of the wildly popular “The Thorn Birds,” Colleen McCullough.
Tim was remade for TV in 1996 as Mary & Tim, with Candice Bergen and Thomas McCarthy.
