YouthIn an Alpine resort, two aging male artists – and best friends – confront their twilight years. Fred, a prominent composer, is being wooed out of retirement by the British royal family, while Mick, a filmmaker, is working on what he hopes will be his final masterpiece. A poignant meditation on the ravages of age, particularly for men, and the waning power of potency. 2015, Italy/France/UK, 124 minutes, rated R

“Symphonic and cinematic, full of melancholy and hushed magic.” –Stephen Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer

Youth is always involving, dealing not so much with nostalgia for that young state as with questions involving love, desire, memory, creativity and dreams for the future that can thrive or atrophy at any age.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“Paolo Sorrentino, with Youth, delivers his most tender film to date, an emotionally rich contemplation of life’s wisdom gained, lost and remembered — with cynicism harping from the sidelines, but as a wearied chord rather than a major motif.” – Jay Weissberg, Variety
