Make Way for Tomorrow

1937, Leo McCarey, 92m
A film about dependency brought about by old age. An elderly couple lose their house and none of their children are in a position to lodge them together. This enforces separation, the thing they dread the most. The film inspired Tokyo Story. It is a well told human story, giving insight into the challenges of aging as well as the problems of caring for the elderly. Among Ebert's list of Great Films.
