    The film portrays several individuals in America’s largest retirement community in Florida, home to over 130,000 seniors. Nicknamed “Disneyland for Retirees,” it offers a utopian version of the American yesteryear. The film demonstrates that no matter our age, we are always becoming. It challenges our stereotypes around aging, emboldening Anne, Reggie, Barbara and Dennis to live as vibrantly as possible in the time they have left. (photo credits: Magnolia Pictures)
