Movie Info

Katherine Mitchell (Linda Thorson), a widowed yet vibrant senior, wasn't looking for love a second time - not at her age, and certainly not with grumpy Isaac Shapiro (Stuart Margolin). Despite the nosey bunch of seniors in the residence where Katherine convalesces after breaking her hip, she and Isaac warm to each other over their shared love of music. Against unforeseen obstacles, their love blooms and together they set out to fulfill Katherine's lifelong dream of going to the opera in Milan.

Unfortunately the film, directed by Leon Marr needs more pep in its step, could use some judicious trimming and... features an unmemorable, under-drawn group of resident seniors, a missed opportunity to help flesh out... this slender, tender tale.

Sinatra sang that it's more comfortable the second time you fall, Dean Martin sang "that's amore," and Yogi Berra said that it's not over until it's over. Those who get those references are bound to get this film.

March 24, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A film that's pleasant enough but never achieves the level of emotional resonance that Marr was aiming for.

March 23, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Most of the comedy falls flat and, when it doesn't, it's too gentle to register.

This heartwarming tale keeps its narrative sweet and simple as it explores a brand of love that rarely makes its way to the silver screen.

December 18, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

[A] gently exuberant and inspiring mature romancer. Nevertheless, the main ingredients that allow The Second Time Around to effectively resonate are its two veteran leads in the always radiant Linda Thorson and spunky Stuart Margolin.
