Second Time Around, The




Two senior citizens discover it’s never too late to fall in love, in this unabashedly sentimental romance. An independent, vivacious, opera-loving widow Katherine finds herself in an assisted living facility with a broken hip. Determined to make a quick recovery and get back on her feet, she puts on a brave face and tries to ingratiate herself with the other residents, a quirky mix of characters. She seems unable, however, to soften the heart of Isaac Shapiro, a cranky and cynical Polish immigrant still raw from the death of his wife years earlier.

Over time, a shared love of music slowly thaws their relationship and sows the seeds of a blossoming romance. Together they will face family upheaval and unforeseen illness while embarking on an unexpected, tentative, but ultimately welcome journey into the future. Featuring career-capping performances by two veteran lead actors (Linda Thorson of The Avengers and two-time Emmy Award winner Stuart Margolin of The Rockford Files) this is a heartfelt film of second chances and the restorative power of love.
