Let’s celebrate ourselves by paying tribute to virtuoso film performances by actors in their “wisdom” years.  See how these accomplished artists help us to explore identity, relationships, and experiences in our search for meaning at this phase of our lives.  Films shown and discussed include: The Straight Story, On Golden Pond, Waking Ned Devine, and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.  Come join the fun as we explore the comedy and drama of growing old together.
