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

True to life on being fifty
20 July 2013 | by Jasonlrdg4See all my reviews

"About Fifty" is a very real to life movie that deals with the fears of being fifty and over.

To be honest, when I saw the film (today on my laptop), I truly had different expectations on how certain things would turn out in the movie. However, I thought that the storyline turned out good regardless.

Martin Grey and Drew Pillsbury, who played Adam and Jon, delivered good performances. I really found their interactions with each other had a brutal honesty and played well into the issues that men their age face (health issues, dating, and divorce). I also enjoyed the golf aspects of the movie and I can see how the sport ties into these guys getting older.
