About the Movie
After an encounter with Walter Breuning, the World’s Oldest Man, Hunter Weeks and his fiancée, Sarah, embark on an adventure to meet the oldest people in the world, including some of the people born in the 1800s. Capturing the extraordinary lives of people 110 years or older, including World’s Oldest Person, Besse Cooper of Georgia, the couple’s journey sheds light on what is truly important in life. Traveling across the United States, Cuba, and Italy, Hunter and Sarah explore life’s lessons through the stories of several living supercentenarians and the families that support them. Walter connects us to the inspiring lives of our elders and their lessons for living life right.
Wonderful film with heart and humor!
It is a true rarity that movie can capture the ultimate reality of life in such a pure and emotional way. I am so thankful for films like this that help us as a society grapple with our own mortality in such a wonderfully honest way. A film about remarkable individuals by remarkable individuals. It takes an amazing amount of courage for the filmmakers to put them self under the same light that most hide behind in a sweet and honest way that doesn’t overpower the rest of the movie. Great film that will speak differently to everyone. I highly recommend it!
Boring self involved millennials asking stupid questions and talking about themselves. Made it through about 30 minutes.
What a great subject! It could have been so interesting and enlightening but the filmmaker spends half the film dragging us through the fairly boring ins and outs of his relationship. We get to see them talk on the floor with a towel on her head. We watch them eat in the car—talking with their mouths full. And we hear at least 6 times how excited the girlfriend (fiancé) is to meet these elderly gems. Here’s the question: “Where’s Walter?” Re edit—ditch the lives of the surrounding people and give us some insight and wisdom from people who have lived for 110+ years….
