At The Lillian Booth Actors Home just outside NYC, a group of long-retired Broadway entertainers dive into a production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and find that nothing is what it seems to be. With a play that is usually about young love and sex farce, this ensemble finds that for them, the themes of perception, reality and dreaming deeply resonate at this stage of life.

As they deal with the shifting mental and physical challenges of old age, they realize that creativity is a magical force of renewal. Starring Broadway luminaries from another era, Still Dreaming thrills with the force of its relevance for those of any age.

This lovely story gives me tremendous hope, at the ripe young age of 55, that I CAN pick up my gift of music again and let it tickle my soul, and perhaps the souls of others. I have been on the cusp of a change for a while, and I do believe the change is upon me -- to awaken again to who I truly am in this world, a musician and healer. Thank you for sharing this inspiring story and movie; the timing couldn't have been more perfect.

So enjoyed this. The seniors depicted in this adaptation of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream are all veteran actors and actresses except for a few, and I especially enjoyed Charlotte, who made me laugh and cry and sing and dance as if she were still the young woman on the stages of her youth. What a fascinating look at a gifted and very unusual population of aging professionals. Not an ordinary movie at all.
