Storyline

A modern comedy that explores the simple truth that it's never too late to start over again. Even at age 50. We meet two long-time golf-buddies, Adam, going through a trial separation from his wife of 15 years and Jon, who is not only losing work to the 'young guy', but also dealing with a 'generous' prostate. They decide to take off on a weekend journey to let loose and re-live the Palm Springs get-a-way of their younger days but meet with unexpected results. Struggling to fit in with the younger crowd, they find surprising comfort through encounters with women nearer their own age. As the weekend progresses, both are forced to come to a truce with middle life's predicaments. A film that asks the question, "If fifty is the new thirty then why do my knees ache?" in what may be the world's first coming of age story... about the coming of age. Written by Greybury

About Fifty
4 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen this cute indie movie a little while ago. Being a fan of independent productions I just had to watch it. While not having the best story & script it was still entertaining enough. The movie also had a nice use of locations. Their low budget was seemingly very well spent. There are no famous actors in this flick except for a few well-known TV players like Wendie Malick, Miriam Flynn or Kathleen No one. There should be more projects like this one in particular. Age is still a huge issue, not just in Hollywood but worldwide. Aging should be displayed in more movies/TV shows and we shouldn't be seeing just a bunch of 20 or 30something actors on silver/small screen. I really hope it can be done in the coming years.
