I recently read an article about a retirement home in L.A. for freethinking elders called Sunset Hall. That would make a good doc I thought. And it did. Saw it last night on public television. It's called Sunset Story and it will break your heart while making you laugh. Apparently most the residents now have Alzheimer's but the filmmakers focused on two best friends, Lucille and Irja. They're hilarious. One is 95, the other 80. They get weekly manicures and attend protests. Irja even makes some sex references, including, "I'm not closed for business." So awesome.
