The award-winning documentary "The Age of Love" follows 30 older adults who sign up for a speed dating event held exclusively for 70-90-year-olds. Services for Adults Staying in Their Homes (SASI), North Shore Village and Mallinckrodt Active Adult Center are co-sponsoring a free screening of the film. While the world's fastest-growing age group is 65+, this is a generation often overlooked in a youth obsessed culture—especially in the area of “looking for love.” The film follows older adults who are smart, articulate and emotionally complex on a journey that requires bravery at any age. Viewers enter the lives of these older adults who still hope to be seen and understood, desire touch and seek a chance at love. "The Age of Love" is a 2013 winner of the Paley Center Doc Pitch Competition for films that “have the potential to change hearts and minds” in American culture.  Refreshments and a discussion about the themes of the film will follow. Registration is required. Call for more information.
