There is no sentimental "walking off into the sunset" when it comes to the stark reality of losing your memory and your identity as a result of dementia. Who wants to live their "golden years" with doubts about one's grasp on reality? This movie is a jolting depiction of what could be in store for anyone over 70. The movie is a little bit idealistic about the romance between two nursing-home residents. With the ratio of about 10 women to every man, the competition is fierce for companionship. Still, I give this film high marks for the acting and the realistic look at age-related atrophy of the brain and its effects on the principals and their families. Old age takes courage, fortitude, and a sense of humor in the best of cases. There just isn't a pill for everything.
