movie PLAY THE GAME with a search for South Florida’s Most Romantic Senior Couple.
PLAY THE GAME stars entertainment icons Andy Griffith and Doris Roberts, and Seinfeld’s Liz Sheridan. Also starring Battlestar Gallactica’s Paul Campbell and Marla Sokoloff of The Practice, the movie shines a heartwarming and surprisingly honest light on seniors as they go through the same excitement, jitters, and challenges as their 20-something grandchildren when it comes to romance, sex and love.
Writer/director Marc Fienberg commented “We usually don’t think of our parents and grandparents as feeling all the same emotions that we feel, but dating and falling in love never changes – the feelings are the same no matter what age you are. That’s why we decided to search for South Florida’s Most Romantic Senior Couple; we thought hearing their stories would be fun and in the spirit of the couples in the movie.”
Marc speaks from experience: PLAY THE GAME was inspired by his relationship with his own grandfather, who resided in a South Florida retirement home and started dating at age 89, with help and advice from his grandson.
PLAY THE GAME received its World Premiere at the recent Fort Lauderdale International Movie Festival, where it walked away with the Audience Favorite Award. The following month, the movie won the Audience Award at the Santa Fe Movie Festival.
