I think my post title would make a great movie title. I think I’ll make that film. Here’s the pitch:
“THE WONDERFULLY GRACEFUL DECLINE”
You’ve heard of ‘coming of age’ films, right? This is the opposite; a film about the ‘decline of age’. Excited yet? Steve Carell and Molly Ringwald (ironic, right?) are a couple trying to find their way in the latter years of life after their kids have all grown and moved away- but no grandkids yet. They set off on a road trip of elderly self discovery- based on the “self discovery trip” they never took in the late 70s because they started having kids instead. Can you “reset” your life at 55(mph)? Comedy and heart-tugging ensues.
Thanks for being a part of OUTNUMBERED- and my ramblings- I appreciate you, one and all. -Tom B.
