Title: Mrs. Palfrey At The Claremont 

Year Of Release: 2005

Review Date: April 30, 2009

Rating: PG-13

Running time: 105 minutes

Box Office Gross: $1,720,953  

Site Rating: 5 out of 10 stars

Mrs. Palfrey At The Claremont is a film about an elderly woman, who moves into a retirement hotel in London, where by chance, she meets a kind young man outside a shop.

They become fast friends and learn from each other. He is an aspiring novelist and she becomes his muse and a grandmother of sorts.

 

Though well filmed with artistic flairs and decent acting, the film is somewhat sad, as it shows old age as a time of boredom, disappointment and melancholy reflection, rather than a time of relaxation, enjoyment, adventure and fulfillment.

I prefer the optimistic take on old age, where one can still be happy with friends and a full life. Mrs. Palfrey At The Claremont also has a sad ending.
