Finnish director Klaus Härö (The Fencer) makes his English language debut with this heartfelt drama set on the coast of Ireland. Howard (James Cosmo, Braveheart) is a cantankerous retired sea captain with little interest in his home or his daughter, Grace (Catherine Walker, House of Gucci). Feeling overwhelmed and underappreciated by her father, Grace hires Annie (Brid Brennan, Brooklyn) as a housekeeper / caregiver to help get her father’s house and life in order. Thinking she’s solved at least one problem in her life, Grace becomes jealous and possessive when she realizes her father has fallen in love with Annie. Fraught with old resentments and a guilt-ridden father-daughter relationship, Grace attempts to thwart the budding romance, but Howard and Annie hold steadfast to prove it’s never too late for new beginnings. Beautifully photographed (and appropriately set in a stormy and rocky locale), and wonderfully performed, Sailor, My Love is just as much about finding love in the twilight years as it is about family obligations and reckoning with the past. (Dir. by Klaus Härö, 2022, Ireland/Finland/Belgium, in English, 103 mins., Not Rated)
