Directed by Ritesh Batra
Starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda
I was looking for something on YouTube now I don’t remember, but I stumbled on an interview where Redford and Fonda were promoting this film. And I remembered that I had it on my wish list on Netflix.
Louis and Addie were neighbors and they both were widowers. Addie had trouble sleeping and went to Louis to make him a proposition. She asked him if he wanted to sleep together (just sleep) so that they both could sleep better.
I have to say that I enjoyed the movie. I thought it had a lovely story. It is a love story without a lot of drama, it is just a story of two people who take a chance and end up falling for each other. It has its moments of drama but I liked that it was outside the relationship.
Another great thing about the movie is seeing these two great actors together. For many years Robert Redford has given great performances and here he does not disappoint. The same thing goes for Jane Fonda.
It is a simple movie of a simple love story between two characters that maybe thought they would not find love again.
