MPAA Rating: NR

In the comic fable Gideon, the residents of the Lakeview Retirement Home are drifting through their final years with quiet dissatisfaction. A former cook can’t stand the food, a former fighter wishes he could still box, a one-time philosophy professor has no one to discuss life’s issues with, and a long-time artist isn’t allowed to paint the way she likes. Then one day Gideon, younger than the rest but suffering from mental retardation, joins the group. While Gideon’s I.Q. is lower than the other residents, his people skills are unusually keen, and his simple yet profound outlook on life soon gives everyone a new lease on life and makes the days something to look forward to again. Christopher Lambert co-produced as well as starring in the title role.
