Late Bloomers Reviews
In a performance that is much deeper than the rest of the movie, Mr. Hurt allows Adam's anger and fear to leak out of his electric blue eyes, which are frequently on the brink of tears.
While the world could certainly use more films about characters entering their sunset years, a solution as toothless and saggy as Julie Gavras' Late Bloomers does little to help the cause.
Ultimately, it's not distinctive enough to draw viewers who haven't given much thought to aging. But that still leaves a substantial audience for the film's gentle laughs and modest insights.
Late Bloomers is at its best when it's being breezy and simply taking pleasure in its lead actors, who turn in strong performances in spite of certain clunky character developments.
