In December, view documentaries curated by the Patron Services staff. These touching and inspiring stories will have you re-considering non-fiction films.

Young@Heart follows the Young@Heart Chorus, a group composed of New England senior citizens who perform songs by artists from Clash to Coldplay. It chronicles seven weeks in the lives of the members of the chorus as they prepare for a one-night-only concert in their hometown of Northampton, Massachusetts. The group is made up of two dozen seniors—former schoolteachers, executives, doctors and food service workers—who specialize in reinterpreting rock, punk, and R&B classics from a unique perspective. What ultimately emerges in the film is a funny and moving testament to friendship, creative inspiration and expectations defied. (2007; 1h 47m)
