Book Club

As I consider the book club I am about to join for the summer, I am certain we will not be reading 50 Shades of Grey, unlike the main characters from the newly released film Book Club. The youngest of this crew are Mary Steenburgen (Carol) and Don Johnson (Arthur), both in their upper 60s; everyone [...]

Crew

Meant as black comedy about aging wiseguys, this disappointing and often depressing film simply serves to remind viewers that the elderly are outliving their financial resources.
