Have you seen this movie? What did you think?
We saw it today and were not all that impressed.
I may be in the minority since it's getting good reviews.
It's about the residents in a home for retired musicians.
So much they could have done with this story line.
But it lacked depth, it lacked some heart.
It had a little heart,....there were a few tender scenes,
but I expected more from senior citizens (I'm talking about the ones at least 20 years older than me.)
They have so much to teach us and impress on us, decades of life experience to share.
This movie would have been a great avenue to do this.
Perhaps I got hung up on 2 particular scenes of bad language.
I know this is how the media sees life, but not where I come from.
Besides, even if one thinks it's okay to say whatever,
I would just expect people to have a bit more class as they get older.
I think my oldest son had some really good thoughts about language in movies.
He use to write a movie review column for our local paper.
I've kept this all these years....from 1995.
Coincidentally Dustin Hoffman was the producer of the movie we saw today.
Apparently he has not changed much, and he's now 75.
