With an extraordinary performance from Academy Award® winner Jack Lemmon, this critically acclaimed drama is the heartwarming story between father and son. When workaholic John Tremont's (Ted Danson) mother (Olympia Dukakis) is unexpectedly hospitalized, he returns home to care for his aging father (Lemmon). As John teaches his father to regain his independence, the two of them form a friendship and John realizes what's missing from his own life. Dad reminds us all of the importance of family in this moving story.
“fearlessly explores life and death and the meaning of it all” – Brian Costello, Common Sense Media
I’M NOT RAPPAPORT
Eighty-one-year-old Nat Moyer (Walter Matthau) is a compulsive and fanciful talker, a feisty philosopher, and a troublemaker given to assuming personalities. His daily companion on a bench in New York's Central Park is Midge Carter (Ossie Davis), a half-blind apartment superintendent. Midge's approach to life is realistic and down-to-earth, making him the perfect foil for Nat. With vaudevillian flair, these appealing oldsters outrageously take on the world and its multiple threats - drug dealers and muggers, enlightened children, forced retirement, and the specter of the old folk's home.
“When Nat (Matthau) and Midge (Davis) talk, it's like verbal music. We could listen all night.” – Roger Ebert
