5 Flights Up is that rarest of movies - a cinematic portrait of a couple in their golden years; a couple wonderfully brought to life by Diane Keaton and Morgan Freeman.
Director Richard Loncraine follows these two characters over the course of 48 hours as they ponder one of life’s biggest questions: what’s next? Should they sell their Brooklyn apartment home, a 5th floor walk-up, or should they stay?
Seamlessly combining flashbacks from their courtship - back when an interracial marriage was still illegal in many states - to their life together worrying over their beloved pet Dorothy, and the hijinks of hosting and attending several “open houses.”
5 Flights Up treats you to a master's class in acting and an utterly charming look at life itself.
