One to watch for.

I've made mention of this before, but now that it's finally being released (as in this month, apparently), it's one to keep on your radars. Young@Heart is a documentary about old people who sing songs that aren't necessarily tunes from their youth. Many battle with dementia and Alzheimer's, along with all of the other fun things that come with age, bringing all new levels of meaning to songs like "My Generation" and "I Wanna Be Sedated." I can't wait to see it ... and honestly hope and dream of some kind of accompanying tour.

I'll be seeing that one! Well, if it plays in Lethbridge.

Yeah, I've been waiting for this too. There's been some great coverage of it.

I've never heard of it before. Now I can't wait to see it. Thanks for putting it on my radar.

The Film Society hosted a screening of this on Wednesday at Broadway and it was by far one of the most charming documentaries I've seen in a long time. I loved it. Perhaps you were there and have already experienced the gem that is this movie, but if not I would assume that since Broadway screened it that it's opening there...? Hopefully.
