Hello, My Name Is Doris – In a light-hearted way, this movie asks: Can we be too old to have a crush? What happens if you give up a lot of your life to take care of another?
Me Before You (DVD) – I cried watching this movie because it reminded me of many clients. People in pain or unable to move, sometimes live lives that may be hard for others to watch — or agree with. This movie looks at how mind and spirit can react when faced with a life altering accident. Do we sit in depression or focus on something or someone outside of ourselves?
Trouble with the Curve – Is Clint Eastwood like your Dad? This movie is for you!
Hope Springs – Sometimes to keep the magic, you need to learn a few tricks.
The Savages – Siblings have to care for a father they never liked.
That Evening Sun – Fleeing the retirement home where his son abandoned him, Abner Meecham sets out to reclaim his beloved Tennessee farmstead.
Two Weeks – Mom is terminal, adult children come to be with her. Funny and easy to relate to as siblings gather.
Duck – Elderly man loses his wife and feels lost until he finds a duckling.
Rudy (Special Edition) – Uplifting, motivational movie about perseverance.
