I've Heard the Mermaids Singing*

  • 1987 ----- color ----- 82 min ----- vhs
  • (Directed by Patricia Rozema; with Sheila McCarthy, Paule Baillargeon, Ann-Marie Macdonald) A comedy about a klutzy carrot top named Polly whose fantasy life has her flying. In reality, she's a temporary secretary who can't even type. In fact, she's "organizationally impaired." But that doesn't stop her from landing a job in one of the city's trendiest art galleries. She loves working for The Curator who's as chic and sophisticated as Polly is clumsy and quirky. All is well until Polly masters the fine art of getting into trouble.
