"45 Years" speaks of the hazards of coming to terms with aging, but also of the hazards of the ghosts of a partner's unfinished emotional business. The film features a week in the lives of Kate (Charlotte Rampling), a retired teacher, and Goeff (Tom Courtenay), a retired manager of an engineering company, as the couple prepares for their 45th anniversary celebration.
Maybe it was just the particular media I happened to watch this week, but I have been thinking about chemistry. (No, not the kind I couldn't pass in high school.) But a different kind of chemistry. And what I am finding is that coupling among 'mature' adults does not necessarily connote sedate or boring.
