Old Goats


Old Goats is the hilarious and heartfelt story of a trio of spirited senior citizens on a quest to make the most of their sunset years, refusing “to go quietly in to that good night.” Friends Bob, Britt, and Dave are each confronting aging in his own unique fashion: straight-laced Dave rebels against his wife’s plans for their new retirement, hoarder Britt struggles with online dating after decades alone on his houseboat, and lively ladies’ man Bob juggles a hyperactive social schedule and a fanciful memoir about his adventurous and so-called “notorious” past. Rife with equal doses of attitude and charm, this slice-of-life comedy (a hit at film festivals including Seattle, Palm Springs, Sun Valley, etc.) finds offbeat humor in the everyday foibles of life and love after retirement, and provides a refreshing perspective on “the golden years,” proving it’s never too late to start an adventure or follow your dreams.
