Reel stories – films on ageing
We have put together a selection of films that portray ageing, in one way or another. It doesn't mean we all like each one, but we believe that cinema, as other forms of art, is an invaluable way of telling stories, challenging, or reinforcing, stereotypes and helping us look differently at the world. See also As the page turns, our book list on ageing.
