Audience Reviews for Tim


Mel Gibson's second film and it is pretty apparent that the young Aussie is a great acting talent. The film itself is very intriguing, despite a oddly slow paced film. The best part of the movie however is the dynamic between a slow minded man, and his elder parents not the budding relationship between a woman and her gardener. All in all great little movie to watch if you are having a bit of an insomniac attack, and just feel like watching TV all night and into the wee morning hours.

Mel Gibson took his best shot with this sweet film about a young retarded man and his gentle relationship with an older woman (Piper Laurie) who teaches him to read and to adjust to the real world. Tim's parents come to trust the woman's honorable intentions.
