After the jump, I’ve got the trailer for The Way We Get By is a documentary premiering at SXSW about the special relationship between servicemen and a group of old people in Bangor, Maine.
“On call 24/7 for the past six years, three senior citizens have made history by greeting nearly one million U.S. troops at the tiny airport in Maine. Filled with unexpected turns, their uplifting and emotional journey demonstrates the meaning of community at a time when America needs it most.” [IMDB]
It seems the soldiers and the seniors find common ground in that they both have to face death every day. I think this looks pretty good, but then, old people (sweet old people, not grumpy or smelly old people) are my second biggest weakness behind puppies. Main difference is, old people you gotta feed more often. Trust me, I’ll never make that mistake again.
