'Nurse to you'

This clip chosen to be G

Clip description

Desi Little (Gary Cooper) is in a hospital bed. Nurse Brenda (Rhoda Roberts) tends to him. In the opposite bed is Hugo Hutton (Ben Oxenbould). He is asleep on his back, a cowboy hat covering his face. A small lady in a wheelchair named Esther (Ella-Mei Wong) wheels over to Hugo and takes his hat off to look at Hugo’s face. Hugo, woken by Desi’s laughter, snatches his hat from Esther. Desi and Hugo are being discharged from the hospital, and according to hospital policy, are wheelchair bound. The two jostle each other in the wheel chairs and race to the hospital exit.

Curator’s notes

The idea of kinship and family is the crux of this scene, where the Indigenous characters acknowledge each other – though Desi in this case is reprimanded for being over familiar – setting up the character of Hugo Hutton to find a similar respect for elders in his own way.
