Frances commented on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Thank you so much for sharing the video, Eddie! Sometimes we need to see an idea visually, to get it in our heads that it's possible.

Jennifer - food is definitely an universal language. I need to make use of that more! And I love that even this theme is played out in movies and books. For example, "Chocolat" with Johnny Depp, or Laura Esquivel's "Like Water for Chocolate".

Love the idea of how stories/films can have an impact to illuminate what it means to be old/young! I cited the example of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel as an another film that seeks to empower seniors.

For me, communicating with my grandma is sometimes an issue. I know she's a treasure chest inside, having been through so many tumultuous events in her life, but it's hard to draw those stories out. And I've on occasions felt sad that we can't communicate on a deeper level.

Taking a grandparent to watch a film, is rare these days, but it's an activity that I think would be fun for the whole family. And I think everyone can grow from the experience. And it can serve as a basis to start a dialogue within the family.

Anyhow, just wanted to check in to say thanks for sharing! :)
