Knowing that it’s never too late to find love whatever your age, and throwing in for good measure some cute pooches with personality, and you’ve got the makings of a great feel good movie.
That is the essence of “23 Walks”, which follows the relationship that blossoms between Dave (Dave Johns) and Fern (Alison Steadman) (both in their sixties) who get to know one another over the course of 23 dog walks.
It was the first time that my partner and I had been to the movies since covid-19 struck and it was a very nice experience to return back to Luna Leederville after what has seemed like an eternity.
There were quite a few interesting themes that were woven throughout the movie – love, the joy of owning dogs, and the challenges of growing old.
Love comes in many shapes and forms, and when it arrives later in life – each individual brings to the table some battle scars and baggage – but oftentimes are a little wiser about the intricacies and challenges of daily life.
