Young @ Heart (2008, Stephen Walker)
This is a documentary about a group of senior citizens that tour singing modern and classic rock songs. The documentary takes place as they begin to rehearse for their latest set which they will tour Europe with in a couple of weeks.
Get it? They are old and sing ROCK songs!
Like, they sing "Staying Alive" or David Bowie's "Golden Years" or James Browns "I Feel Good" !!
It's because they are old and they sing those songs which makes it clever!
THEY ARE OLD AND SING THESE SONGS THAT ARE CLEVER WHEN SUNG BY OLD PEOPLE!!
DO YOU GET IT?!?!
It has a couple of touching moments. Sure. I get how it's nice that they are all really into it also. Sure.
But come on!
