SYNOPSIS:
Silver Skies chronicles a group of seniors whose lives turn upside down when their Los Angeles apartment complex threatens to be sold out from under them. Director Rosemary Rodriguez has assembled a high-profile cast to play some very complicated roles. With humor and compassion, she brings these old-timers to a place of fear, a little romance and deep caring for each others' well-being. Long term pals Phil and Nick (George Hamilton and Jack McGee) tenderly face Phil's descent into Alzheimer's. Ethel (the sexy Valerie Perrine) finds friendship trumps love. Mariette Hartley's Harriet discovers life is good when you let down your guard. And with incredible moxie, Eve (Barbara Bain) demonstrates that age is no impediment when it comes to defending what's right. The story is easily relatable, as our aging population confronts a downturn in health, money and self-esteem. Now in their twilight years, facing the unknown, these underdogs will have you rooting for them all the way.
