The retired dentist Caroline attends a class for computer users. Although she is married, she falls in love with her significantly younger lecturer. It turns out he used to visit her surgery because primarily in order to enjoy her view. Her husband finds out about her affair with this admirer. Written by
A 60 year old woman has recently retired, is mourning the death of a close friend and is looking for meaning in her life. She is introduced to a 'seniors' club as a way of meeting people and participating in new activities. She initially shows little interest until the possibility of an affair with one of the organisers begins.
Nice idea for a screenplay, perhaps the screenplay was good, but the end product doesn't realise the potential. The film ultimately plays safe and succeeds only if it was aiming to be 'feel good'. Missed opportunities to become 'interesting' and 'unique' as well as 'bright'.
Some humorous moments but not enough for it to be a comedy. Some investigation of characters but not enough for it to be a drama.
