MY MISTRESS is Stephen Lance’s first feature film. It is a love story between a young male and an older woman played by Emmanuelle Béart.

 

“If there is one Australian film that you watch this year, make it Stephen Lance’s debut feature film, My Mistress.” Rehab for the Fabulous

“I think you could say the film is like a dream, or a spell. A love spell. Something that comes over you like a fever, but doesn’t last. A fragile, tender connection that gives the characters some healing for a time, and then goes. I’ve always been interested in unusual love connections in films, whether it’s Harold and Maude, Lost in translation, Murmur of the heart or White Palace.” Stephen Lance, Melbourne Review

The film was a nominee for the Australian Writers’ Guild Feature Film Original Award.
