I can sum up the theme of this film in three words!


Getting old sucks. For all the people posting that they are creeped out by the age difference they are missing the point.

Opposites attract.
Well, that might be too brief a description for a very complex situation that is portrayed beautifully by the two leading characters. There's all kinds of nuances in the acting. I particularly liked the expressions on Maurice's face (his eyes, actually) when he watched Jessie adoringly, and the expressions on Jessie's face when she realized that she was appreciated by a mature, cultured man.
Old, young; educated, uneducated; dying, alive; ying, yang.
