Young @ Heart
First screened in December 2008
Director: Stephen Walker. Documentary about a senior citizens' chorus that specializes in punk, soul, and rock & roll music. Interview subjects include Bob Cilman, Joe Benoit, Len Fontaine, Eileen Hall, Fred Knittle, Steve Martin, Dora Morrow, Bob Salvini.

Twitter Capsule: Can't say much for the richness of the filmmaking, but it sure hits its emotional targets. "Fix You" is the pinnacle.

VOR:   A crowd-pleaser, but only really distinctive for its rare address to the very elderly. Moving but not noteworthy.
