We watched this movie on Saturday night and it brought both Jennifer and me to tears a couple of times. Need to loan it to both sets of our parents before we return it.
Great, great movie. Made me respect senior citizens even more, especially ones who sing Talking Heads tunes.
Here is a snippet of the review from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops:
Often funny and ultimately moving documentary about a Northampton, Mass., senior citizens’ chorus whose repertoire includes rock, R&B and punk selections as they rehearse over a two-month period for a hometown concert and cope with the death of one member and the ill health of others. Director-narrator Stephen Walker’s film quickly engages viewers by introducing a winning array of real-life characters and charting their struggles to master the music and carry on with the show. Frank sexual discussion, innuendo, occasional crass language; possibly acceptable for older teens. A-III — adults. (PG) (R) 2008
Here’s the trailer:
And here’s a clip of the part that hit us the hardest, of Young@Heart singing a song from Coldplay:
