If you’re looking for a reason to ditch those New Year’s resolutions, tune into a new Cinemax film that airs Tuesday night. It’s about life and death in an assisted living facility, the likely destination for long-living Boomers. Here’s the lede to my review.
Jan. 14 (Bloomberg) — Growing old isn’t for sissies. Anyone who doubts that should tune into “Andrew Jenks, Room 335,'’ which airs on Cinemax tomorrow at 7 p.m. New York time.
The 90-minute film about life and death at a Florida assisted-living facility is depressing and inspiring. It provides a peek into the likely futures of millions of baby boomers, who may want to ditch all those life-stretching diets and exercise regimens when they see what awaits them.
