The Age of Love follows the comic and poignant adventures of 30 senior adults who attend a first-of-its-kind speed dating event for 70- to 90-year-olds and discover how the search for love changes – or doesn’t change – from first love to the far reaches of life. Over one summer, we intimately follow ten speed daters – recently widowed, long-divorced, or never-married – as each prepares for the big day, endures a rush of encounters, then anxiously receives their results. Fearlessly candid about themselves and what they’re seeking, these WWII babies are forced to take stock of life-worn bodies and still-hopeful hearts. Then, as they head out on dates, comic and bittersweet moments reveal how worries over physical appearance, romance and rejection, loss and new beginnings change – or don’t change – from first love to the far reaches of life. The Age of Love is a story of the universality of love and desire, regardless of age.

Dessert reception and moderated discussion will follow the film.
