MONTCLAIR, NJ -- An award-winning documentary on speed dating for the 70+ generation, will be shown at the Montclair Public Library on May 9.
Speed-dating for seniors has become a growing trend across the US thanks to The Age of Love
, a groundbreaking, documentary offering a touching and funny look into the lives of seniors who just want to find love.
To celebrate Older Americans Month, Montclair Public Library will offer a free screening of the film at 6:00 p.m. on May 9 in the Main Library Auditorium.
The film follows the comic and poignant adventures of a thirty Rochester, NY seniors who sign up for a first-of its-kind speed dating event for 70- to 90-year-olds. Fearlessly candid about their needs and desires, these WWII babies soon discover how the search for love changes—or doesn’t change—from first love to the far reaches of life.
Defeating stereotypes and linking generations, the film will open minds of all ages to the desires of our booming older population. As one 74-year-old speed dater puts it, “No one, not even my children, asks me what’s in my heart anymore.”
Winner of the NYC’s Paley Center Doc Pitch Competition and awarded a Fledgling Fund grant, The Age of Love previewed at the AARP National Expo in Boston and is now rolling out to over 200 venues across the US, as well as in England, Greece, Russia, Australia, Brazil and beyond.
