Fortunately, now that many people stay indoors, there is enough time to watch reviews on folding mobility scooters and many beautiful films and series. Also for seniors, more and more beautiful films have been made by the best actors in recent years.
There was a time when older Hollywood actors were pushed aside by film producers. Incomprehensible of course. Fortunately, films with older actors are more popular than ever. Top actors such as Meryl Streep, Diane Keaton, Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin, Morgan Freeman, Robert DeNiro, and Helen Mirren may be a day older, but they are still splashing off the screen. Fortunately, more and more directors are discovering that films for seniors are hot. The films below prove one by one that 70 is the new 50. They can be viewed via streaming services such as Netflix, YouTube, Apple Movies, Pathé Thuis, or Google Play.
THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY
After several wanderings, an Indian family ends up in the South of France where it decides to open an Indian restaurant in a largely abandoned villa. One small problem: right across the road is the Michelin star restaurant of master chef Hellen Mirren. This naturally leads to problems in the neighborhood. Until the son of the family, who turns out to be a very talented chef, manages to bridge the gap. Wonderful feel-good film for those who love good food and the beautiful southern French landscape.
Some young entrepreneurs seem to have everything perfectly underway: their own business, plenty of work, and a lot of young people around them who are helping to build on the great success. You would say no place for people over 70. Unless your name is Robert de Niro, of course. In The Intern, Ben (De Niro) applies as an intern at the hip, successful internet company of Anne Hathaway. Ultimately, of course, it is not only DeNiro who gains a lot of experience and wisdom during his internship.
THE BUCKET LIST
Two men (Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman) are told that they only have a certain time to live. However, she does not take it easy. They draw up a bucket list of things they still want to do before they can no longer do that. And then it’s time to implement that list, of course. An engaging and comical film about (re) learning to have fun.
