Storyline

"Assisted Living" chronicles a day in the life of Todd, a janitor who spends his days smoking pot and interacting with the residents for his own entertainment. Todd's detachment from his surroundings is compromised only by his unlikely friendship with Mrs. Pearlman, a resident who begins to confuse him with her son. On this particular day, Todd must choose whether or not to play the part. "Assisted Living" is shot and staged in a real nursing home and gains much of its unique effect and style from the participation of actual residents and staff members. During much of the film, it is impossible to distinguish between what is real and what is fiction. Written by Lars Ericson

When Can I Buy A Copy??
13 December 2004 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

I recently saw "Assisted Living" at a private screening in Washington, DC, and I thought it was incredible. The film captures the loneliness that many older people go through when their families forget about them, but it also portrays the fundamental beauty of human relationships. I was so happy to see this area/topic explored by a "younger person." As a 24-year old who works in this industry I'm often frustrated by the lack of interest and respect for the elderly and for the aging process. Mr. Greenebaum captured a message that sadly escapes many people today -- that quality of life is largely determined by how people treat each other, and your willingness to connect with others....regardless of how old you are.
