Goofs

The central characters say (two times) that they are buying an apartment on 1st Avenue and 77th Street and when they enter the apartment (also two times) it's clearly off Amsterdam Avenue on Cathedral Parkway, which is around 110th Street in West Harlem/Morningside Heights - more than 2 miles from where they are supposed to be. These two neighborhoods don't look alike at all. See more »

A Beautiful Movie.
11 May 2015 | by highmaster16See all my reviews

Morgan Freeman hasn't really been acting recently,considering Dolphin Tale 2 where he was just phoning it in,but here he nails it.His chemistry with Diane Keaton is mind blowing,they are perfect for this roles.

Now the movie doesn't quiet transcend all the clichés but overall when u look at it it's just a real life beautiful movie about moving out from an apartment that they have been in for 40 years.

It's a movie that deals with a dilemma that we all maybe have or will be going through.Because we all have to move at some point in life,we all have to look for a new pace to live in,we all get old,and this is mostly this movie deals with.

You should take your whole family to see this movie,it's amazing,it's shot perfectly and overall just 92 minutes well spend considering all this rubbish that's been coming out recently.
