Home for Life
This award-wining documentary follows two elderly people as they enter Chicago's Drexel Home for the Aged: a childless widower who can no longer live independently and a woman who was shut out of her son and daughter-in-law's home. Gordon Quinn and Gerald Temaner follow the newcomers' first month at the facility as they adjust to their new -- and final -- home. Produced in 1968, the film remains a powerful look at the plight of the aged in America.
