Description

Romantic comedy starring Shirley MacLaine and Christopher Plummer. After his daughter (Marcia Gay Harden) persuades him to move into a new apartment, aged widower Fred (Plummer) strikes up a friendship with his eccentric 74-year-old neighbour Elsa (MacLaine), who convinces him it's never too late to keep enjoying life. Although he seemed resigned to a miserable bedridden existence, Frank embraces Elsa's youthful enthusiasm as she introduces him to the path of life and entertains him with outlandish stories about her past life. But when he discovers Elsa's terminally ill, Frank decides to accompany her on the trip of her dreams to the eternal city of Rome to help her fulfil a lifelong ambition.

"[With] the presence of Shirley MacLaine and Christopher Plummer, both sprightly and appealing in the lead roles..."
Hollywood Reporter Staff (5 Nov 2014, )
Los Angeles Times
"[The] incredible faces -- MacLaine alight from within every moment, Plummer's glow burning brighter and brighter -- make the romance of ELSA & FRED vibrantly alive."
Betsy Sharkey (6 Nov 2014, )
New York Times
"[T]he movie’s too-cute concept yields more rewards than you might reasonably expect."
Stephen Holden (7 Nov 2014, )
