Five aging friends decide to move in together in Stephane Robelin's crowd-pleasing comedy, starring Jane Fonda (in her first French-language film since Godard's TOUT VA BIEN), Geraldine Chaplin, and Claude Rich. Comfortably retired, they hire a handsome graduate student (Daniel Bruehl) as a live-in caretaker and rediscover the joys of "communal" living--but when old secrets and long-simmering jealousies emerge, discord among the group begins to grow.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
A dour Gallic comedy about five septuagenarian friends living comfortably in the outskirts of Paris who decide to share a house rather than move into retirement homes.Stephen Holden, New York Times, 10.18.2012
Well-acted and directed, with melancholy grooved insights that will only be news to the young and narcissistic, Together is a pleasant way to while away an afternoon and see some old pros in great form.Ernest Hardy, Village Voice, 10.16.2012
The film's central performances reflect both its celebration of age and a sense of wistfulness.Joel Arnold, NPR, 10.18.2012
The acting is solid, and the maturity of vision mixed with humor should appeal to the same audience that turned The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel into such an unexpected runaway hit.Rex Reed, New York Observer, 10.16.2012
