Plot & Details

An obvious labor of love for producer/ director/ writer/ photographer Victor Nunez, Gal Young 'Un was blessed with almost unanimous critical praise, and as such received a much wider distribution than might otherwise have been possible. The film, set in Florida in the 1930s, involves an independent woman (Dana Preu) who marries a charming but wastrelly man (David Peck) much younger than herself. She tries to maintain equilibrium in the relationship despite her husband's obvious preoccupation with the "gal young'un" (J. Smith) who works as their housekeeper. Director Nunez brilliantly conveys the isolation and loneliness inherent in the story with his evocative use of genuine backwater Florida locations. This was based on a story by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings.
