All Together (Et si on vivait tous ensemble?)

Directed by Stéphane Robelin

Synopsis

Five aging friends decide to move in together in Stéphane Robelin's crowd-pleasing comedy, starring Jane Fonda (in her first French-language film since Godard's 1972 Tout Va Bien), Geraldine Chaplin, and Claude Rich. Comfortably retired, they hire a handsome graduate student (Daniel Brühl) as a live-in caretaker and rediscover the joys of “communal” living -- but when old secrets and long-simmering jealousies emerge, discord among the group begins to grow.

Five aging friends decide to ditch assisted living and move in with each other in the crowd-pleasing comedy ALL TOGETHER, starring screen legend Jane Fonda. When elderly lothario Claude (Claude Rich, THE BRIDE WORE BLACK) is put into an old folks home, his friends bust him out and start a cranky commune together, thinking they can care for each other better than anyone else. Fonda heads the brilliant cast that also includes Geraldine Chaplin (DOCTOR ZHIVAGO), Pierre Richard (LA CHEVRE) and humorist Guy Bedos. The group is joined by a young graduate student (Daniel Brühl) who films their experiment for his research project, while also acting as a de facto caretaker. They all discover the joys of communal living, at least until old jealousies and the infirmities of age begin to pull the group apart.

ALL TOGETHER is an "agreeably chipper comedy" (NY Times) that proves that the golden years don't have to be boring years.
