Friday, June 7 at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. – Late Bloomers (2011) Starring William Hurt and Isabella Rossellini; Not Rated; 95 minutes. Closed captioned for the hearing impaired.
Mary and Adam aren’t your typical older couple, they’re high functioning and stylish and to their great surprise, they’ve entered the senior category. Adam is in frantic denial, desperately looking for the fountain of youth as Mary decides to deal with the situation by doing what she does best, taking care of her husband and family. After 30 years together, the married couple confronts the unpalatable realities of getting older and concludes that emotional absence is the easiest way to cope. But at what point does distance become divorce?
"[Rossellini] is radiant in a profoundly ordinary and believable way, as always, and stirs up generational pathos all by herself." -- Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
