Written / directed by Noble Jones, The Tomorrow Man stars John Lithgow, Blythe Danner, Derek Cecil and Katie Aselton. It’s a drama / romance about two people trying not to get lost in each other’s stuff as they aim for love.
The challenge is that both have quite a bit of baggage. One is preparing for a disaster that may never come while the other spends their time shopping for things they may never use…
This trailer started off kind of creepy but I’m glad to say that it now looks like one of those heart warming affairs. in fact, I’m quite looking forward to finding out the qualities Danner’s Ronnie and Lithgow’s Ed find most endearing about each other.
Sophie Thatcher, Eve Harlow, Wendy Makkena, Tyler Aser and Liz Cameron also star.
Besides being recognisable as an actress in her own right, I’ve known Blythe Danner as the mother of Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow and as the lovely Lady who often plays a well-meaning mother in films and TV shows; Meet The Parents (2000) and Will & Grace (1998-2006), respectively to name just two.
In the Brett Haley directed I’ll See You In My Dreams, Danner stars and is both charming and engaging. This is a comedy/ drama that follows Danner’s character (Carol) and her experience of life after retirement.
The nature of the relationships between Carol and her female friends was one of my favourite things. Watch it for a bittersweet story well told and a taster of the simple and priceless things you’ll want in later life, including the delightfully unexpected.
Martin Starr, Sam Elliott, June Squibb, Rhea Perlman and Mary Kay Place make up the supporting cast.
