I'll See you In My Dreams

This morning I saw Blythe Danner interviewed on Morning Joe about her new film, “I’ll See You In My Dreams,” also featuring Sam Elliott, Rhea Perlman, Mary Kay Place, June Squibb and Martin Starr., and directed by a young and insightful Brett Haley.  The film is about a woman in her 70s (Danner is 72) who has lived and suffered loss —  and is real and fun as well as deep, down to earth and independent. Primarily a stage actor, Danner’s  beauty and graciousness were shining throughout this interview. The film seems like a must see for all ages, and I will. From this interview and reviews,  those who are young will see that growing older should be an adventure; those Danner’s age and older will be inspired; those in-between will smile, understanding the magic potential in endurance. = Like her character, Carol, who has been widowed for 20 years, Danner, who was married to director Bruce Paltrow, has been widowed for 12. Of course you know who her daughter is, a daughter who seems very different than her mom and would be wise to learn some life-lessons from her!
