Late Bloomers begins when Mary (Isabella Rossellini) and Adam (William Hurt), a high functioning couple, realise that they have entered the senior category. Adam's reaction to this 'discovery' is as frantic as his denial and he desperately looks for the 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 humour and a great eye for complex emotions, writer and director Julie Gavras shows that while the experience of ageing is real, the pressure to act a 'certain age' is one of the biggest obstacles to a good life after 60.
