“I’ll See You In My Dreams”


0025192303005_p0_v2_s118x184Blythe Danner portrays a widow who has comfortably settled into widowhood.  She has her home, her friends, and a life she seemingly enjoys. Then her world gets shaken up.

First she sees a rat, not a mouse but a rat, scurrying across her living room floor.  She asks the pool man for help finding it.  This encounter leads to a friendship between this young man, who is at loose ends, and Danner’s character.  Later a chance meeting with a very handsome older man at her golf club leads to a brief but meaningful episode in her life.

Well played by Blythe Danner, Martin Starr and Sam Elliott, this movie will appeal to those who enjoy stories about the what ifs we may encounter in our later years.

A mixture of comedy and drama, the speed dating involving seniors is very funny, “I’ll See You In My Dreams” is a well written, well acted film.
