Eddie Belasco is a 75 year old Italian American who seems to have jumped from the pages of a Scorsese script. Except he lives with his 98 year old mother, Josephine. Luckily, their senses of humour match their levels of irritability. Together they fight and laugh in equal measures as the difficulties of aging and living in a changing neighborhood catch up with them. Eddie was always one to love the limelight, trying his hand at acting and managing topless female rock bands but now runs a non-profit theatre group for young people. In the meantime the spot light is squarely on Josephine with local press running to her, as she finally gets her school diploma. Acclaimed cinematographer , Jenna Rosher , deftly captures the bond between this odd couple and crafts a hilarious and touching portrait of growing old while staying young. After this you will be unable to restist the urge to hug the closest mother you can find.
