Brett Haley’s I'll See You in My Dreams is about those who have seen it all and can teach the rest of us a little something about living. A retired school teacher and widow, Carol Petersen (Blythe Danner), spends most of her days working in her garden, playing cards, gossiping with friends and relaxing with a glass of wine. She lives a nice quiet life.
Her world is turned upside down by a series of unexpected events that cause her to engage in new relationships and reevaluate the way she’s been living. A new Carol is born; she tries speed dating, befriends the 30-something pool cleaner (Martin Starr), reignites a love for singing and begins dating a handsome gravely voiced retiree named Bill(Sam Elliot), who might just be the coolest man on the planet.
