By all means make films for "old people". This is obviously aimed at the more mature audience. The issue I have with it is it's too weak, it's lazy & obvious.

Brian Cox is a great actor, but this needed someone else to bring it to life (Peter O'Toole, if he was still around, would have been perfect).

The familiar plot is that of a young carer looking after a cranky impossible eccentric , it's sentimental, it's totally predictable, & it's jolly tedious.
