Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred lived at the home for retired musicians. every year there is a concert to celebrate and relive their musical days where all residents would participate. Jean was a well-known musician at her younger age. now that she was old, she was sent to the home to live with the others. sad to be old, she refused to socialize until she found out that her ex-husband, Reggie was among them.
despite having mainly old people at the center of the film, it was surprisingly amusing. the storyline was highly predictable, though not unwelcoming for us. they were fun to look at, sometimes even made hilarious jokes. the rebuilt relationship between Jean and Reggie was gentle and sweet. moments into the film, we fell for their charm
