For the 5th year, Senior Planet has published its nominees for their Aging with Attitude Film Awards.
“As in earlier years, we’re nominating films released over the last year that embody ‘aging with attitude.’ The pressure is increasing in Hollywood to address ageism…. Here are some films with images about aging that were honest, strong, resilient, empowered, and well-rounded.”
The nominees among films released in 2017 are the following: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, The Hero (starring Sam Elliott), The Midwife (from France with English subtitles), Lucky, and The Post (Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks).
Descriptions, trailers and where you can view each movie are included in this article: Aging With Attitude Film Awards
This list provides some great movie entertainment for us who are in the over-50 group as well as everyone who would like to see some good films. We can all benefit from positive depictions of people of all ages.
I love gathering and curating ideas and resources that enhance and enrich life. With the ever-expanding amount of information we have access to, finding what may be applicable to us can be overwhelming. It can be very helpful to have someone do the research, gather information and share what they found on a topic. Most of the topics being explored here can be of interest and useful to people of all ages.

Some things are more specifically targeted to people aged 50 and older. “Transforming Your Life After 50” is a process to which I am personally committed. My purpose here is to provide ideas, inspiration and tools so others can also engage in a life-affirming process that enriches and energizes their lives in our years after 50. That process is based on our dedication to delighting in the gift of life, using that gift the best way we can, and being grateful.
“Transform” is to change in form, appearance or structure, or change in condition, nature or character; to turn around.
People considered Baby Boomers, born between 1946 and 1964, are now in their mid-fifties to about seventy years old. This stage of life is different in many ways from our parents’ and grandparents’ experiences: life expectancy, health, resources, technology, and the wide array of options have changed. With the pace of our lives, many of us do not take the time or energy to take responsibility for making these years the best they can be – except perhaps in terms of finances.
For many of us, these years are ones of transition from very intense career development, child rearing, and community involvement to ones where there is some time and space available. This can be a time of new experiences and of reinventing our lives for a “third act” that includes “retirement” as we chose to define it. It can be a time of transformation.
I invite you into an exploration of what you bring into this new phase of life and of tools that help you anticipate and design a “third age” that is satisfying, joyful and contributes to the well-being of others. I look forward to sharing and to communicating with you as we travel this path of exploration and discovery.
