Thursday Movie Picks: Movies About The Elderly
This week's theme from Wandering Through The Shelves is about films that focus on characters of a certain age. *EDIT* I realize now after reading a few other posts that this topic was supposed to be about movies FOR the elderly and not necessarily about them but I'm not re-writing this. I think they work.
Woody (Bruce Dern) drags his son on a roadtrip from Montana to Nebraska. This is one of the few instances where I like a modern film in black and white. I was pleasantly surprised by it.
While this movie is from Ewan McGregor's point of view, I'm using it here because of Christopher Plummer's wonderful (and Oscar winning) performance. He's so sweet.
The elderly couple that made all the unsuspecting Pixar fans bawl in the first 10 minutes of the movie. I really adore UP and Carl as a character.
