Elsa & Fred

A romantic comedy for the ages.
  • My goodness, you DO have a heart!

An English-language remake of the Spanish film of the same name, this is about a elderly widower (Fred) who feels disturbed, confused and alone. His daughter helps move him into a small apartment where he meets Elsa. From that moment on, everything changes. She bursts into his life like a whirlwind, determined to teach him that the time he has left to live, no matter how long, is precious and that he should enjoy it as he pleases.
