Lonely neighbors and their thoughtful parents’ journey to adjoining hearts.
Charles, a musicologist, has cloistered himself off from romantic entanglements. He keeps himself occupied with work, casual friendships, food visits from his mother, Helen, and Leonard Bernstein’s music. Isabel, a brokenhearted poet, moves into the apartment next door and has only her visiting father, George, for company. After Charles unexpectedly rescues Isabel from a half-hearted suicide attempt, his loving yet sometimes overbearing mother tries to push the two of them together.
The parents themselves finally meet and all fitfully and agreeably navigate a path filled with food, laughter and romance, surprisingly discovering that true love can blossom when you least expect it.
“…an unlikely romantic success (that) spells hope for us all” – Chicago Tribune
“…a buoyant, affecting and unpretentiously sweet romance.” —Chicago Tribune.
“…sweet romance, a bit of Jewish tradition … and the gentle assertion that those often referred to as ‘seniors’ have an interesting life of their own.” – Quad Cities Times
