The Age of Love

An unprecedented speed-dating event for 70- to 90-year-olds serves as the backdrop for THE AGE OF LOVE, an alternately poignant and funny look at the search for love among the senior set.

Over the course of one summer, filmmaker Steven Loring follows ten speed daters – recently widowed, long-divorced or never-married – who prepare for the big day, endure a rush of encounters, then anxiously receive their results. Fearlessly candid about themselves and what they’re seeking, these WWII babies are forced to take stock of life-worn bodies and still-hopeful hearts.

Then, as they head out on dates that result, comic and bittersweet moments reveal how worries over physical appearance, romance and rejection, loss and new beginnings change – or don't change – from first love to the far reaches of life. THE AGE OF LOVE is a story of the universality of love and desire, regardless of age.
