Charming Film, With Tunnel Vision
This is a heartwarming film about people in their nineties, mostly celebrities, who discuss what keeps them going in life.
I enjoyed seeing all of the participants, especially Dick Van Dyke and Betty White, who I remember from the 1950s, both of whom are still lively past the age of 90.
What I did not like about the film is the implication that we can all be as fortunate as the individuals depicted. Medical problems are not discussed, nor is the fact that most people simply die before they reach eighty years of age. I did not like the fact that the film suggests that we can all stay alive and healthy with a "can-do" spirit. This idea is so simplistic and inaccurate, it's almost offensive.
However, I do recommend the film, due to the fact that the participants are all interesting and inspirational.
