"Late Bloomers" begins when Mary (Isabella Rossellini) and Adam (William Hurt), a high-functioning couple, realize that they have entered the senior category. Adam's reaction to this "discovery" is as frantic as his denial, and he desperately looks for a fountain of youth. Mary, on the other hand, decides to deal with the situation by doing what she does best: taking care of everyone. With humor and a great eye for complex emotions, writer/director Julie Gavras shows that while the experience of aging is real, the pressure to act any "certain age" is one of the biggest obstacles to a good life after 60.
