Boynton Beach Club

type
  • Movie

A key secret of old people is that many of them don’t regard themselves as old. Their geezerness is in the eye of the beholder, and Susan Seidelman, setting her ensemble romance Boynton Beach Club in a Florida retirement village, proves a gracious, if meandering, beholder. Her aged lonelyhearts may be overly nice, but they’re amorous without being cute about it. Len Cariou is touching as a widower whose pain has left him in a daze, Joseph Bologna has a great speech about senior bachelorhood, and Dyan Cannon, at 69, is still a flower.
