Ageing and Film
Have you seen The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel yet? If you have, what did you think of the way it portrayed those in later life?
Having watched my grandparents grow older, they way society treats our older generations is an issue that's close to my heart. So I found this article by David Cox in The Guardian, about the way ageing is dealt with in film, incredibly interesting. For me, it's spot on in recognising what worked and what didn't in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel's view of the older generations.
