Keiko Ibi's perceptive, charming documentary juxtaposes a play performed by seniors in Manhattan about the search for love, with the performers' own thoughts and observations on love and romance in the autumn of their lives. Frank, optimistic and sometimes sad, The Personals offers a glimpse into the ageing process without the stereotypes usually associated with the subject. 1999 Academy Award winner for Best Documentary Short.
