'About a Boy' (2002)
Will Freeman is a hip Londoner who one day realizes that his friends are all involved with the responsibilities of married life and that leaves him alone in the cold. Passing himself off as a single father, he starts to meet a string of single mums, confident in his ability to leave them behind when they start to ask for a commitment. But Will's hope of a continued bachelorhood is interrupted when he meets 12-year old Marcus, in many ways his complete opposite.
Discussant for this film will be Patti Holland.

'The Age of Love' (2014)
The announcement of a first-of-its-kind Speed Dating event exclusively for 70- to 90-year-olds spurs a diverse group of seniors to take stock of aging bodies and still-hopeful hearts. Over one summer, we intimately follow as ten speed daters -- recently widowed, long-divorced or never-married -- prepare for the big day, endure a rush of encounters then anxiously receive their results. Along the way, windows open revealing hidden emotions of this often stereotyped population. As they head out on dates that result, comic, poignant and bittersweet moments reveal how worries over physical appearance, romance and rejection, loss and new beginnings are universal, changing little from first love to the far reaches of life.
Discussant for this film will be Bob Linscott.
