Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont

Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont

Stream HERE!

Back in June we recommended Dan Ireland's film The Whole Wide World. Today's Rialto Recommends is another film from this talented director and former exhibitor. MRS. PALFRY AT THE CLAREMONT stars Dame Joan Plowright, Rupert Friend and bevy of senior British actors. All but abandoned by her family in a London retirement hotel, an elderly woman strikes up a curious friendship with a young writer. The Boston Globe said "It's an altogether satisfying drama -- the sort of movie some people complain they don't make anymore." While the Seattle Times said "Like a cup of strong British tea with a sugar cube tossed in, Dan Ireland's Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont is at once sweet and bitter, a fairy-tale friendship in the context of an achingly lonely life." And Roger Ebert observed "Just as teenagers enjoy escapist movies, so do the elderly. They simply prefer a gentler pace. What is touching about Mrs. Palfrey is that she is allowed to be elderly, and not turned into a hip-hop granny." Check out MRS PALFRY AT THE CLAREMONT streaming on Hoopla and DirectTV HERE.
