Let’s talk about…
Has anyone seen the bittersweet, sad and funny film Song for Marion? It is one of many films in recent years that have older people starring in roles that portray real life issues and some of the realities of getting older.
In the film Vanessa Redgrave plays a seriously ill woman who gets much enjoyment from singing with her local (and somewhat unusual) community choir. Her grumpy husband (Terence Stamp) is completely unimpressed. The film follows the changes the choir makes for him and their family as their story unfolds.
One of the highlights of the film is the choir performing the Salt n Pepa hit “Let’s Talk About Sex” to an astonished and delighted audience.
The film has lots of messages about Age Proofing your life. For a trailer follow this link:
And for Salt n Pepa’s brilliant 1991 original, here is another link:
1991? That’s 22 years ago. Hope S & P are thinking about age proofing their lives now….
