Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967)

A wealthy, liberal couple's attitudes are challenged when their daughter brings home a fiancé who is black.

A dodgy topic is handled with the utmost care and taste and an underchallenged cast and has dated quite badly by now.

Halliwell**: "The problem picture that isn't really, since everyone is so nice and the prospective bridegroom is so eligible. It looks like a photographer play, but isn't based on one; the set is unconvincing; but the acting is a dream."

Maltin***: "Glossy tale...Fluff is given strength by Oscar-winning Hepburn and Tracy in his last film appearance."

Young@Heart (2007)

A documentary on a chorus of senior citizens from Massachusetts who cover songs by Jimi Hendrix, Coldplay, Sonic Youth, and other unexpected musicians.
Good documentary with some surprises (the music choices!), heart-rending scenes and a few insights what it can be like to grow old.
Maltin***:  "Proving that age is all about attitude and a desire for "Staying Alive" (one of the highlighted tunes), this moving film captures moments of glory and sorrow as these lively subjects rehearse their remarkable show."

Ashley Scott

New Stuff: Solomon Northup

The book on which the movie 12 Years a Slave is based upon (unfortunately the book cover isn't quite tasteful).
