Film: The Second Time Around
Monday, Aug 7 | 5:00 PM
Katherine Mitchell wasn't looking for love a second time, not at her age, and certainly not with cranky Isaac Shapiro. Despite the nosy bunch of seniors in the residence where Katherine convalesces after breaking her hip, she and Isaac warm to each other over their shared love of music. But family problems and unforeseen illness threaten both their blossoming relationship and Katherine's lifelong dream of going to the opera in Milan.
