Elsa & Fred , the 2006 Grand Prize winner of the St. Louis International Film Festival has been remade.
Remakes always induce groans for Le Movie Snob, but with Christopher Plummer playing Fred, Shirley MacLaine as Elsa, and Michael Radford (Il Postino) directing, it may just work out. It opened the Miami Film Festival this past March and received a “roaring response.”
While the original Elsa y Fred takes place in Argentina, Rome is the key locale of the story. High on love, the AARP amoureux travel to Rome to taste La Dolce Vita at its source.
Celebrate love at any age when Elsa & Fred opens in theatres and on VOD on November 7th.
