- LATE BLOOMERS
- 2011, Julie Gavras, UK/France, 95 min.
- With Isabella Rossellini, William Hurt
French director Gavras (BLAME IT ON FIDEL) crosses the channel for this wry and wistful look at the difficulties of growing old gracefully. Hurt and Rossellini co-star as London architect Adam (complete with British accent) and his Italian-born wife Mary. With the big six-oh looming up, Mary bravely reconciles herself to a future of bifocals and big-buttoned telephones, while Adam tries to evade the inevitable by consorting with a group of young architecture students. Joanna Lumley (AbFab) has a juicy supporting role as Mary’s sharp-tongued Silver Panther friend. In English. Special advance screening courtesy of Olive Films. HDCAM video. (MR)
