“Golden Years” Movie (2016) — Old-School British Comedy, Understated, Dry Wit But Amusing Throughout.
The Full Movie is on YouTube for $3.99
This is the Trailer.
Found this on our ‘Acorn TV‘ channel (on the Roku 3) yesterday. Looked promising and it had the potential of being another ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’. Well, it isn’t as funny — but I don’t think it ever tried to be that funny. The beauty of this movie is the dry wit; understated British humor, with a lot of subtle ‘nudge, nudge‘, ‘wink, wink‘. If you are into British humor you will know, at once, what I am talking about. It is an amusing yarn, slightly predictable — but that is part of the charm.
It is set mainly in Bristol. That was nostalgic for I. I have spent a LOT of time in Bristol in the 1970s. Kind of a second home. This film has one of the most exquisite images of the Clifton Suspension Bridge I have ever seen. I had to rewind it and watch it again, it was that exquisite.
If you like British humor you should watch this. Available on YouTube. Enjoy.
