Elsa & Fred (2014)

Elsa and Fred poster.jpg

A gentle comedy about two old-timers getting it together. She’s a gadabout fibber, he’s a temperamental victim of his daughter’s do-gooding interfering. As new neighbours they seem hellbent on making trouble for each other but it turns into something else … A gentle disquisition on ender relationships from the director Michael Radford, adapted from the 2005 Spanish-Argentinian film by Anna Pavignano (who did Il Postino with Radford) but according to Christopher Plummer, rewritten on set in N’Oleans by him, Shirley MacLaine and Radford.
