Katherine Mitchell (Linda Thorson), a widowed yet vibrant senior, wasn't looking for love a second time - not at her age, and certainly not with grumpy Isaac Shapiro (Stuart Margolin). Despite the nosey bunch of seniors in the residence where Katherine convalesces after breaking her hip, she and Isaac warm to each other over their shared love of music. Against unforeseen obstacles, their love blooms and together they set out to fulfill Katherine's lifelong dream of going to the opera in Milan.

"Both Thorson and Margolis are a revelation in this gently exuberant and inspiring mature romancer. It is quite refreshing to witness folks of an advanced age connecting in a quaint gem of a film that freely showcases affection in such an elegant, sophisticated quirky manner." - SCREEN ANARCHY

"Visually stimulating with a wonderful soundtrack! Besides being a charming love story, this movie gives us insightful glimpses into the lives of the residents of senior citizen facilities... I recommend this movie heartily!" - SAN DIEGO JEWISH NEWS

"Thorson and Margolin deliver fine performances. She's feisty yet vulnerable. He's cantankerous yet loving. And as a couple, they mesh in this endearing film." - THE TIMES OF ISRAEL

"A gentle and well-intentioned drama...Katherine and Isaac's trajectory - from dining-room table mates to friends to bed partners - proves credible and occasionally poignant; they're good people and we root for them." - LOS ANGELES TIMES

"There’s both a captivating charm and an open-hearted vulnerability to 'The Second Time Around' that elevates it above many of its lackluster genre brethren. This heartwarming tale keeps its narrative sweet and simple as it explores a brand of love that rarely makes its way to the silver screen. Sometimes we need a reminder of the power of comfortable, minimalist cinema, with all the bells and whistles of the big budget spectacles stripped away. With this film, Marr has created an airy, naturalistic ecosystem that is able to entertain without embellishing...a deft argument that it’s never too late to be lucky in love." - THE YOUNG FOLKS
