MOVING ON is a dark comedy/drama reuniting Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda once again. It is, indeed, not a FRANKIE AND GRACIE moment, but it was sufficiently tart and realistic.
The film showcases scenarios of aging and dealing with physical limitations, budgeting money, regrets, revenge, and old friendships. It has authentic dialogues about learning to let go and get on with it in witty Fonda/Tomlin style. The writers “got it.” And the creative, easy acting between this duo works every time. Kudos. The only problem at times was the pacing. There were many issues to wade through to get to the payoff. Yes, it was worthwhile in the end. Good to know for all of us approaching or in our senior years.
MOVING ON was entertaining and sarcastically humorous. The film also features veteran actors Richard Roundtree and Malcolm McDowell. Universal themes gave this movie its path back to the beginning, but only if Lily Tomlin does not do the driving.
It is available to stream on HULU.
