My gal, Rosemarie

Of humming birds and burgers: how old cans pay for a simple 90th-birthday treat

In a cluttered apartment paid for by Social Security cheques, Ray and Rosemarie enjoy life’s small, inexpensive pleasures, such as back-porch birdwatching, cable TV movies and, above all, nurturing their 50-year marriage. With no savings and Rosemarie’s 90th birthday coming up, Ray collects enough cans to ‘splurge’ on a rare dinner from her favourite burger restaurant. A tender, idiosyncratic portrait of aging and a subtle reflection on a tenuous version of the American Dream, My Gal, Rosemarie was a film festival favourite in 2015.
