Last Friday, Time Goes By readers were asked for suggestions of movies about elders, films that enhance and contribute to our understanding of what it’s really like to get older. We began with the list from Ziv Schteinberg and WOW!
What an excellent and valuable list of good ElderMovies you came up with. They are now compiled into an alphabetical list which can be retrieved from the new blog section titled “TGB Features” on the right sidebar where The TGB ElderMovie List is now permanently available.
Each title on the movielist page is linked to its listing in the Internet Movie Database where there is voluminous information on each one. If Crabby Old Lady were writing this post, she would tell you: “And you better damned well appreciate it because it took her many hours on Saturday morning to retrieve the links, write the html and create this page for you.”
But that's Crabby Old Lady speaking; I, of course, would never be so cheeky.
Over the weekend, Portland, Maine felt the bite of its first below-freezing night of the season. Winter can no longer be denied and I think Crabby Old Lady, Oliver the cat and I will spend the cold evenings of the next few months working our way through this list from top to bottom. There are so many interesting choices.
Thank you to everyone who contributed and will contribute in the future to this fine list of ElderMovies. We did good. Please keep new titles coming as they occur to you or new films are released. Instructions for doing so are on The TGB ElderMovie List page.
Tuesday – tomorrow - is election day. If you have not voted by absentee ballot, please be sure your arrangements are in order to vote tomorrow. This is the most important mid-term election in most of our lifetimes.
