Writer-director Taylor Guterson delighted SIFF audiences three years ago with Old Goats, a low-key comedy about three old codger pals who refuse to give up on life. After a movie that broke stereotypes in its depiction of the elderly, Guterson wasn't ready to put aside his actors just yet. As he notes, the film premiered just a few weeks before one of the cast, Bob Burkholder, turned 90 years old. "I wanted to do another feature with him while we still had time." In this film, Burkholder (whose name gave Guterson his title) plays Teddy-a more fictionalized version of himself-who rents a basement suite from Barry (Britton Crosley, another Old Goats alumnus), as he has done for more than two decades. But lately Barry has become irritated by the older man's erratic, crotchety behavior. Casting about for a solution, he turns to an underemployed couples counselor for help in this quirky, life-affirming, low-key comedy about friendship and the joys of aging.
