Better late than never

How old are we vs how old do we feel? That’s the basis of the new film Late Bloomers, with Isabella Rossellini and William Hurt. A little uneven in the beginning, it will soon draw you in to the lives of a couple turning 60 in London. Hurt is an energetic architect who wants to hang with his young proteges and buy new jeans. Rossellini, on the other hand overreacts and installs grab-bars and big-button phones long before they’re needed. The difference in their attitudes to hitting the “big 6-0” threatens their long relationship. Two other generations are involved; The inimitable Doreen Mantle is Rosellini’s mom, and the three grown children all have to deal with the repercussions of the central pair’s decisions. This gives the film a broader-than-boomer appeal. It’s charming and funny.
