Coming Soon: The Doctor's Wife directed by Jonathan Duffy

A gay Doctor takes his partner to live in a small country town in rural Australia. The pair are nervous about the journey ahead and decide to film their experience.

The film began production in September 2008 when Dr Vincent Cornelisse decided to leave 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.

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 and asks the question, "Would their experience be the same if Vincent wasn't the town Doctor?"
