ELSA & FRED

Christopher Plummer, Shirley Maclaine

  • SYNOPSIS

    This charming romantic comedy features Elsa, a gregarious retiree who’s as lively as the New Orleans streets outside her apartment. When straight-laced widower Fred (Plummer) moves into her apartment building, the two fight and flirt like old lovers. Fred just wants to be left alone, but Elsa won't hear of it! As the old curmudgeon and blithe spirit get to know each other, a love grows between them, learning to embrace life even in their old age. This spirited script was adapted from an original film that played in theaters in Latin America for a year and spawned a successful stage play.
