When I first saw this movie, I wasn’t too drawn to the love story of these two old people. I guess experience (and age) plays a very big part in appreciating certain topics. What once was boring and tedious is now brilliantly-paced and well-directed. The icky feel of seeing people beyond their prime act like horny teenagers becomes more acceptable and understandable.
Here are two people discovering that love shouldn’t be selfish; that it goes above and beyond making oneself happy. Here is a real love story depicting real, relatable people excellently portrayed by Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep.
One of the best stories about love that I’ve ever seen.
