This charming romantic comedy finds Elsa (MacLaine), a gregarious retiree who's as lively as the New Orleans streets outside her apartment. When straight-laced widower Fred (Plummer) moves into her apartment building, the two fight and flirt like old lovers. Fred just wants to be left alone, but she won't hear of it! This spirited script was adapted from an original film that played in theaters in Latin America for a year and spawned a successful stage play.
