Film recommendation for the month of May

Love Among the Ruins

In this made-for-TV movie, set in Victorian London, a wealthy widow is being sued for breach of promise by her much-younger ex-fiancé. A highly-respected barrister, another of the widow's ex-lovers is defending her in court. He is driven to hilarious distraction by her adamant insistence that she's never met him. This is a charming film of lost love rediscovered by two people in their sunset years. It helps us to understand what true love can be and how life’s circumstances can sometimes get in the way but with hope, persistence and honesty, people can find themselves again and in doing so, find happiness along the way. It stars: Katharine Hepburn and Laurence Olivier two of the greatest actors of all time.
