I should acknowledge the support, practically the sponsorship, from Boycotting Trends
in helping build up my collection of films starring the older generation. And stretching over a good few years of film-making, it is interesting to see how the overly genteel likes of Ladies in Lavender
and My House in Umbria
have been largely eased out (though not completely, as per My Old Lady
) in favour of more nuanced takes on the ageing process.
