I'll See You in My Dreams Directed by Brett Haley
Though the general tone is bittersweet and affirmative, the film doesn’t just exist to endorse the idea of older people being active and pretending to be young. Its chief pleasure is that it really gets at how difficult it is to cast your anxieties aside and embrace carefree fun once more. Its small, minutely focused story takes in a wealth of considerations without addressing them in too clunkily direct a manner. It’s a very sweet film.

Dreams doesn’t present its heroine, Carol, as an audience-identification figure—the film, a multidimensional character study, encourages a certain critical distance from her. Carol might learn a thing or two about aging by the movie’s end, though all of her problems aren’t eliminated (as is often the case in the boomers-in-retirement subgenre). What matters is that we learn a thing or two about her.

There are three reasons to see I’ll See You in My Dreams. Blythe Danner is Reason No. 1. She also happens to be Reasons Nos. 2 and 3. It’s a tour de force of a performance, in part because at times it feels like three different performances. And the subtleties of the way they shift transform an otherwise slight tale of romance and old age into something more profound about the roles we play in life — about the faces we prepare to meet the faces that we meet.
