"Call it a feature-length, kinder Curb Your Enthusiasm." (Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle)

A life-affirming dramedy that “sparkles with wit and depth as it celebrates love and romance while reflecting on the challenges of growing older.”(Broadway World) To say that Mariette Hartley and Jerry Sroka make an unlikely couple is an understatement. She is a tall, elegant screen star who worked with Hitchcock and Peckinpah; he is a short, pudgy voice actor known for Antz and Family Guy. Both, however, bond over the indignities of being out-of-work actors of a certain age, while navigating the seniors singles scene. Initially indifferent to his advances, Hartley is eventually won over by Sroka’s quirky humour and innate goodness. Written by Hartley and Sroka, this charming film also features memorable cameos by Bernie Kopell, Morgan Fairchild and Tess Harper. Directed by Don Scardino (30 Rock).

Reviews - ”A delightfully sincere romantic comedy about the trials and tribulations of love, dating, and romance past middle age.” -
- “This brilliantly paced and cleverly written account of love discovered in the golden years is in itself a pure work of gold and Hartley, radiant as ever, is its centrepiece. She delivers a masterful mint performance, matched by Sroka's comedic prowess.”- Broadway World
