I'll have to catch this sometime, looks really timely. And sounds by your review really well done. Aging can be such a scary thing- I already have nightmares about being old and alone. And every year I'm the one making sure we are contributing to our 401k's- but it never seems like whatever we can add will be enough for someday...

Ps. The clip is great! She is 40? She kicked ass and so did the makeup dept!


I know exactly what you mean. Being old and poor frightens me, as does the idea that people would stop being interested in you and merely tolerate your presence. Just sounds lonely. The movie isn't even remotely reassuring about any of that, but I feel like it did give me some insight into the old people in my life. It's totally worth seeing because it's really great, but also to build some compassion that we're gonna need some day.

It was funny with the actress...I looked her up on Wikipedia as soon as the movie was over. First thing I saw? Died in 1981. Major WTF moment.
