Assisted Living (2013)
Joe Taylor, a retired actor, moves into a prison-turned-elder-care facility shortly after the demise of Medicare and discovers a community of loveable, irascible inmates hell-bent on bucking the dehumanizing system in which they have landed. Together, this band of aging misfits rediscovers purpose and dignity in the face of a system mightily stacked against them. A delightful, world premiere comedy with bite from Seattle native Katie Forgette, that dares to confront the issue of aging in America.
