This is a funny and intimate documentary that will make you think differently about growing old. It tells the story of two friends ( 81 ) and ( 95 ), at a rest home for retired radicals. As they attend demonstrations, register their fellow residents to vote, and debate everything under the sun, their verve and humor delight us. This movie doesn't shy away from the sadness of old age, it reveals two elderly women's lives in an unusually authentic and surprisingly moving way.
