Set in contemporary Melbourne,
Benjamin Mary
is the tale of a couple in three phases of their relationship:
at 25, just married and in love,
dreaming of a life together;
at 50, the apex of continuous ego confrontations,
at 75, both resigned to the unfolding of their story.
Alternating
between
humour
and sadness,
Benjamin Mary
dares
to expose
a couple’s relationship
as it transforms
throughout
the
years
