Movies For Grown-Ups

When I was growing up my sisters and I were not allowed to go to movies.  Something about our church's views on modern morals coming out of Hollywood.

So, of course, I strained to see  over the fence surrounding  drive-in theaters when we drove past.  I longed to know what I was missing on those huge screens.  

I never got over my fascination with stories acted out on a screen, whether outdoors, in a darkened  theater, or nowadays on my own TV.   And as much as I admire many young actors I tend to prefer the stories with older people in them.   Stories for grown-ups.


Here are some worth viewing.  Some from AARP's annual list.   Some that I particularly like.   The old films have been converted to DVD, of course. 


They and all of the newer movies are available for purchase from  Amazon.  If you're like me sometimes it is not enough to just see a movie on a TV subscription channel.  I have to own it!
