Setting: the singles scene at a futuristic pick-up bar. Portrait of guys and dolls on the make, fortified by martinis or cosmos as they desperately try to connect with another willing partner. They're all hungry;you can practically taste it. But it's a meat market with a difference. For most, their only contact with the opposite sex is a phone line and TV monitor. Definitely a safety net for those with second thought;till between the turn-ons and put downs, they emerge from their chat rooms to meet the perfect match. Yet these swinging singles aren't Brittany or Brad wannabees. They're seniors of uncertain age, muddling through the last chapter of their lives, warding off loneliness as they search for love and companionship and sex. Until... Written by
Charming and different. Terrific actors who are obviously very professional as I recognized many from film, TV and stage. An intriguing original idea. In wonder how many seniors would be interested in this video dating. It speaks to the difficulty of meeting new people in the big cities and elsewhere. Of course loneliness is a problem for the elderly. The twist at the end is startling and fascinating. I understand it was shot at a bar that actually does video dating and has the set up for that. I was surprised these places were actually real. It also show that seniors have needs and desires and age does not dim these needs. Basically everyone needs someone. Young people are not alone in this search.
