Storyline

In the 1970s and 80s, hundreds of thousands of senior citizens migrated from New York City to Kings Point, a typical retirement community, located just outside West Palm Beach, Florida. Lured by blue skies, sunshine, palm trees, and the promise of a rich social life, they bought their way to paradise for just a $1,500 down payment. Now, as an aging community faces its own mortality, paradise has begun to exact a higher price. Through the experiences of six longtime residents, 'Kings Point' captures both the allure and the darker complexities of living in a world where 'nobody gets too close.' Poignant, funny and dark, 'Kings Point' is a deeply empathetic portrait of the last act of the American Dream. Written by Anonymous

Some footage in search of a documentary
31 May 2016 | by altereggo123See all my reviews

This is a pretty random film. Hard to recommend to viewers of any age, and not because it is depressing. It's the lack of structure. There are some monologues by the elderly about their lives, a few exchanges in which two or three people converse with each other in front of the camera. No progression, no obvious beginning, middle or end. (No narration either, though that wouldn't be needed if the film itself weren't so listless.) It's like a collection of outtakes. I would love to see the real movie they were cut from. I kept waiting for the movie to begin and then I realized I was stuck in the middle and it would end just as it began. The few barely coherent scenes involve elderly people who want love but can't find it or who don't think themselves capable of love anymore. We see people preparing dinner or dancing or playing mah jongg or sitting around the pool. A couple of good songs on the sound track at the end do not redeem this mish mash of dull clips. Though short, it felt long, and it definitely did not leave me wanting more.
