Never Too Old for Love

I know I talk a lot about ageism. How many romantic comedies have a happily ever after when depicting an older couple? And how many of them get made in the first place? I watched the beautiful little movie, Our Souls at Night, on Netflix, starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda. A love story filled with hope and vulnerability.  Another layer of beauty was added by the fact that the two first acted together in 1960 in Tall Story.

A similar form of vulnerability was also on display in Blade Runner 2049, where a 75 year old Harrison Ford still yearns for his love from 30 years ago.  No one is too old to love.
