Story


"Late Bloomers" begins when Mary (Isabella Rossellini) and Adam (William Hurt), a high-functioning couple, realize that they have entered the senior category. Adam's reaction to this "discovery" is as frantic as his denial, and he desperately looks for a fountain of youth. Mary, on the other hand, decides to deal with the situation by doing what she does best: taking care of everyone. With humor and a great eye for complex emotions, writer/director Julie Gavras shows that while the experience of aging is real, the pressure to act any "certain age" is one of the biggest obstacles to a good life after 60.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..moves at a poky pace even by American indie standards..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..the result is a comedy-drama that's depressingly superficial, corny and entirely predictable. In short, Late Bloomersis blooming awful..”
by Don Groves [sbs.com.au]
“..over the course of a drawn-out 90 minutes, this long-married couple fights, separates and reconciles, though their prickliness is decidedly diluted..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
