I'll See You in My Dreams
USA, 2015, 95 min., Color

It seems like every other film coming out now is a “coming of age” movie. What about those “of age”? Brett Haley’s I’LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS is about those who have seen it all and can teach the rest of us a little something about living.

A retired school teacher and widow, Carol Petersen (Blythe Danner), spends most of her days working in her garden, playing cards, gossiping with friends and relaxing with a glass of wine. She lives a nice quiet life. Her world is turned upside down by a series of unexpected events that cause her to engage in new relationships and reevaluate the way she’s been living. A new Carol is born; she tries speed dating, befriends the 30-something pool cleaner (Martin Starr), reignites a love for singing and begins dating a handsome gravely voiced retiree named Bill(Sam Elliot), who might just be the coolest man on the planet.

I’LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS is a wonderfully sweet and engaging “of age” dramedy that will leave audiences thinking life begins in your 70s…or whenever you want it to.
