The Grocer’s Wife

;The Grocer`s Wife Movie Poster;This film follows the erotic adventures of a certain Tim Midley. He`s a generally attractive sort of guy, but basically your typical mild-mannered gentleman who still lives with his mother. His mother, best described as bossy, has a job monitoring the pollution from a smokestack and one night is rushed to hospital after being overcome by the pollution. Finally, having a few moments alone, Tim invites an exotic dancer, Anita Newlove (Susinn McFarlen) to stay with him. When his mother dies, Anita, instead of leaving town at the end of the week as promised, decides to stay with Tim. The film gets its title from an incident early on in the action when Tim must fend off the advances of Mrs. Friendly, the grocer`s wife.

The Grocer`s Wife won two Genie Awards: the Claude Jutra Award for Direction of a First Feature Film and the award for Supporting Actress for Nicola Cavendish.
