As I was perusing Netflix instant, I came across Lovely, Still with Martin Landau. It is a story set at Christmas about an elderly bachelor who is asked out on a date by his new neighbor. It got four stars, so I gave it a chance, and I was not disappointed.
The film begins as a straight-forward , charming look into the awkward process of dating into your senior years. Don’t mistake this for a “grumpy Old Men” remake, because its far from it. The film weaves a deeper story that will leave you wrapped up in these two people’s love for each other. Its a great date-night movie for you and your spouse with a holiday feel, but with surprising depth. And from someone who is picky about love stories (dare I say chick flicks? Bleck!), this is a great pick.
