Starring Academy Award Winner Martin Landau, Paul Sorvino & Maria Dizzia

In this touching comedic drama and final film before his death earlier this year, Martin Landau plays Dr. Abe Mandelbaum, who finds himself in a nursing home with his seriously ill wife.  Here he strikes up an unlikely friendship with an Italian gambler and womanizer, bonding with him over shared sexual issues.  Into the picture comes a young nurse who claims her biological father lives in the home.  This comic and sensitive view of life’s last hurrah shows it is “never too late for life.”

Director Howard Weiner / USA 2017 / English / Running time: 85 minutes
