The Age of Love

January 31, 2020

At the outset of The Age of Love , an elderly man shows videographer Steven Loring a snapshot of his wife and himself taken at night: “We were right in the woods and it was great. We could sit in the creek with a case of beer in the water. You love each other and you have a good time, no matter what you do—whether it’s drinking or walking or sitting at the fire at night. If I keep talking and thinking about my life, I’m going to start crying.” Another man shares a much older photo. Young and smiling, he and his wife are posing inside the Roman Coliseum. He comments: “I only took her out once and I said, ‘I’m not going to let her get away’. The way she talked, the way she walked, the way she moved. That’s my love. It was and always will be.”
