Golden Years!

Asian Journal - - Cinema -

Old age and past in­dis­cre­tions rise to the sur­face in 45 Years. Two of Bri­tain’s top ac­tors do their best to nav­i­gate some trou­bled wa­tersers in this well pre­sented drama from Sony Pic­tures Clas­sics nowow mak­ing in­roads at The Fifth Av­enue Cin­e­mas. Long live mar­riage. That an­cient rit­ual de­mands cel­e­bra­tion.n. So re­tired cou­pleKate and Ge­off Mercer are all busy puttingg the fin­ish­ing touches on their 45th year wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion.n. Too bad a bit of an­cient his­tory sort of ours a downer on their plans. Con­sider Char­lotte Ram­pling (Zar­doz) and Tom m Courteney (Tom Jones) to be at the top of their game. Af­ter a long time un­der the same roof and pre­sum­ably in the same bed you’d think that by now they would each know each other’s se­crets.Bet­ter think again. Hell hath no f fury likelik a woman scornedd so whenh Kate l learns thath h her h hub­bybb may h have had an af­fair and had not been to­tally up front about it the knives g get sharp­ened for . . . ? S Sus­pi­cious minds make 45 Years in­ter­est­ing, en­ter­tain­ing and yes even so some­what in­sight­ful. Soul search­ing on screen and in the minds/hearts of a mem­ber of the au­di­ence or two hits home with a wal­lop. Just how thi this cou­ple gets out of their cur­rent pickle re­ally makes you care about the them. Di­rec­tor An­drew Haigh does a good job keep­ing us in­trigued thro through­out this ex­pertly acted drama that shows hu­man strain and unde un­de­ni­able pres­sures.
