“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

A Movie to Watch...
Thursday, August 13, 2009

Make sure you rent "Young @ Heart" from Netflix. Don't let the awful title scare you away as it nearly did me. The film is a documentary about a group of old folks in their 70s and 80s who are a singing troupe ... only the songs they sing are not what you'd expect: "Stayin' Alive", "Should I Stay or Should I Go?", "I Wanna Be Sedated", and "Forever Young" by Bob Dylan. The story shows you plenty of their poignant and funny performances as it follows the lives and relationships of these actors, two of whom die during the making of the movie. It's one of the most provocative, moving shows I've ever watched.

All I can say is that after the movie ended I walked over to the computer and ordered it on Amazon. 'Nuff said.

Nicole here from AuthorsOnTheWeb...yep, still read your blog! I just watched this movie last weekend. Very timely blog post! I haven't cried that much in awhile...very moving. Definitely a great one. Netflix did a very good job selecting it for me....
