Spider and Rose is a 1994 Australian film directed by Bill Bennett and starring Ruth Cracknell, Simon Bossell, and Max Cullen. It is about the relationship between an elderly lady and a young ambulance driver.
Although the film was marketed as a comedy, Bennett says he never regarded the film as such, but a serious look at how we treat the aged.
