A Very Sweet Little Movie, Which I Enjoyed

I very much enjoyed this unusual movie depicting the lives of two people in their older, and in this case, more lonesome years.

Both Fonda and Redford gave nuanced performances which were very relatable, especially if you are over the age of 60. I doubt that very young adults would find much to enjoy about this picture, and that is a shame because in fact it displays well the one thing which people cannot lose if they are to continue enjoying their lives into their last decades, and that is hope.

So often younger people do not appreciate the wisdom and humanity which both come with age. Nor do they realize that if they are lucky, they, too, will be old one day.

If you want a sweet look into lives of the older but certainly not dead yet, this would be a good place to do so.

A very good movie, written or adults, and done with great sincerity

I really liked this film. It felt like it was an adult film. No stunts, no special effects. Just a heartwarming story of two lonely people way, way into the last nine holes of their lives.

In a small town in Colorado, Addie Moore (Fonda) and Louis Waters (Redford) have been neighbors for decades but don't really know each other. That's why it strikes Louis, a widower, as odd when Addie, a widow, comes over one evening with a matter-of-fact request: "Would you be interested in coming over to my house sometime and sleeping with me?"

It's not about sex, Addie adds - "I lost interest in that a long time ago," she says. Rather, it's about companionship, having someone to talk to and "getting through the night." Louis thinks it over and agrees.

Their baggage, their apprehension about starting a new relationship and their knowledge that there isn't time to waste are enough, and them overcoming those issues is what propels the story.

Mostly, the director Batra lets the well-worked chemistry Redford and Fonda share do the heavy lifting. The stars have made three movies together before this: as an escaped convict and his unfaithful wife in "The Chase" (1966), as an uptight lawyer and his free-spirit bride in "Barefoot in the Park" (1967), and as a broken-down rodeo star and a sassy journalist in "The Electric Horseman" (1979) - and in "Our Souls at Night," they still bring out in each other a warmth and an easygoing manner, as if they've always been and always will be like this.

This is an endearing film. Kudos to Fonda, Redford and the other actors, who were uniformly good, and well directed.

Solid acting in a satisfying tale

Cary Grant was one of my two favorite actors, but I was disappointed in him retiring. Not that I expected him to work full time in his later years, but it would have been nice to see him at least once in a while. My other favorite actor was Spencer Tracy, who kept on working literally until the end. I admire that. And os, I also admire that at age 81 Robert Redford is still putting himself out there for those of us who admired and admire him. I have to admit though, that since I am approaching 70, watching Redford age has been a bit difficult for me. When I was fairly young, Redford made a string of films that I greatly admired ("The Candidate", for example).

And so, though I think it would be fair to say that this effort by Redford isn't going to set the world on fire (it's a slow pace), it's a decent film that shows the challenges of getting old, but not in the usual weeper. And in fact, the film doesn't end the way you kind of expect it to...which is good. Redford and Jane Fonda really show their craft here -- good, solid acting that makes you care about the characters.

It's also interesting to see Iain Armitage, the boy who is "Young Sheldon". Although it was filmed the same year as the beginning of the television show, he seems so little here.

All in all, this is a good movie for mature audiences. We all get to where these characters are, but it doesn't mean that life can't be full.
