“Ill See You in My Dreams”

Tweetable Logline: You can’t turn back the clock, but you can wind it up again. Starring Blythe Danner and Martin Starr.

Elevator Pitch:
I’LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS tells the story of Carol (Blythe Danner), a widow in her 70s, struggling to find purpose and make sense of life in the “twilight” years. After the death of her dog rattles her routine, she decides to start dating again, and falls into relationships with two different men – the senior, exuberant Bill, who embraces life, and her younger pool cleaner, Lloyd (Martin Starr), who is struggling to find his purpose. Through these relationships, Carol confronts her fears about love, aging, and death and adopts a new outlook on this phase of her life.

Production Team:

Co-Writers: Marc Basch & Brett Haley (The New Year)
Director: Brett Haley (The New Year)
Producers: Rebecca Green & Laura D. Smith
Cinematographer: Rob Givens

About the Production: 
I’LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS is a deceptively small story, but it asks big questions. The setting, characters, and honest, human approach make this a surprising and unique film. This is not an “old person” movie. It’s a movie about people who happen to be “old.”
