“Oh! What a wonderful list. Bill Newcott's top 100 makes you want to curl up with a stack of DVD’s and revisit Hollywood’s best.” — Arch Campbell, Broadcast Film Critics Association
“…a treasure trove of sterling and often delightfully offbeat recommendations for discerning moviegoers, from the beginnings of film right up the present.” — Peter Rainer, author of Rainer on Film: Thirty Years of Film Writing in a Turbulent and Transformative Era
Finally, an end to the old complaint, “There’s nothing to watch!” Since 2002, AARP’s Movies for Grownups has been celebrating movies with special appeal for the 50+ audience through reviews, film festivals, private screenings, and a weekly TV series. Now, in the first-ever Movies for Grownups book, MFG creator Bill Newcott selects the 100 essential films for those who love great cinema.
The collection includes a variety of classics, from Gone with the Wind and Casablanca to new favorites like Capote and The King’s Speech. You’ll also find every film that has won the coveted trophy for the year’s Best Movie for Grownups, chosen by the editors of AARP the Magazine. Then there are the hidden gems—films you may never have heard of, but ones you’ll never forget once you see them, thanks to this comprehensive, concisely written collection.
