Top 10 Movies about Aging

Have you had just about enough of action thrillers, space epics and teen-age love?  Me too.  That’s why I set out to make a list of my first movies starring….mature people.

In honor of the Academy Awards,  I have chosen my 10 favorites.  In fact, I was surprised how many good movies I found that celebrate aging. Chances are, there are others that deserve a top slot. But these are the ones I settled on.

  1. Driving Miss Daisy (1989). An old Jewish woman her black chauffeur in the American South have a relationship that grows and improves over the years.   Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman in a classic that covers topics of bigotry, racism, age and independence.
