young at heart

corner brook has two theatres and a few video stores, but it's rare for a movie to come here that isn't an american blockbuster. fortunately there is a group that bring in indie movies and show them the last monday of each month. this past monday i went to see "young at heart" - a documentary about a group of old people (average age 82) who put on musical performances in the states and around europe. this movie is breathtaking. it made me feel "old age" as i never have before. it was heart breaking and incredibly positive. i can't see this clip without crying.

Thank you for sharing this. It made me think of my folks (long gone). It's so important to honor our elders by giving them a voice...and what a wonderful way to do it. XOXO Martie
