A young gay doctor decides to move from the city to the country to further his career. His partner, an ex-actor takes a camera along with them and films their experience.

Director: Jonathan Duffy

Writer: Jonathan Duffy

Stars: Jonathan Duffy and Vincent Cornelisse

Awards: Canada International Film Festival, 2012, Won Award of Excellence, Documentary Competition, Jonathan Duffy (director) (Just Off Centre Productions (production company)

Genres: Documentary | Biography | Comedy | Drama

Storyline: The film began production when Dr Vincent Cornelisse decided to leave urban Brisbane and move to country Queensland in order to further his career. However, Vincent wouldn't do this without his partner, Jonathan Duffy. Neither of the two had ever lived in a country town and were excited about the scene change but nervous about how they would be received because they are a gay couple. A friend jokingly suggested that Jonathan should film their experience in case they were murdered. Jonathan decided to do this, not because he thought they would be in danger, because he believed that it was going to be a positive and enlightening journey. The Doctor's Wife explores their journey through Jonathan's eyes.

The documentary reads pretty much like a movie, even if, basically, there is almost always Jono on display. But that is no demerit to the whole, on the contrary, I loved when Jono was on display, talking to the camera and changing while his life was changing. Sometime he involved Vinnie, sometime not. Jono was the center, the drama queen (he says at the beginning of the story how he didn't know his friends looked at him like he was a big drama queen). When someone else entered the scene, I saw like a "kind concession" the queen was doing to the servant, allowing him/her a little spot on the stage, but be aware, not to steal the scene.

Jono is so big, so much, that nothing else is really needed. Thinking this is a documentary and not a movie, makes me happy, since it means Jono is real and somewhere out there. I really hope he is like he appears in this documentary, because a world with someone like Jono in them is a better world for sure.
