Editorial Reviews

With levity and sadness, two grown children and their aging parents struggle with the decision whether the older generation should stay in the house where they have lived for fifty years. Shot in the house where the director's parents lived for close to fifty years shortly after they moved out, the film's semi-autobiographical story is memorably acted by a small ensemble cast led by Elliott Gould. Shot in sequence in three weeks with a heady mix of improvisational work by both author Richard Ledes and his cast, the film's personal approach to its subject captures a universal story uniquely told.

Can a small personal film ever be too small? I suppose the answer may vary for everyone. But in the case of Richard Ledes' "Fred Won't Move Out," my answer is in the affirmative. I thought the premise of the film was solid and I was happy to see Elliott Gould back in a leading role. Ultimately, though, the experience didn't make much of an impact for me. It's actually rather surprising, because the movie examines that difficult transitional period when grown kids must assume the caregiver role for their parents. This is a topic that really resonates with me, something that I have lived through. But in an understated and extremely personal exploration, Ledes scores with some finely realized moments without ever really developing a compelling bigger picture. The movie has a quasi-improvisational feel, more of a pet project than a feature film. I still liked "Fred Won't Move Out" well enough, I just wanted a stronger emotional connection.

The film introduces us to Fred (Gould) and Susan (Judith Roberts, my favorite thing in the movie). Susan is dealing both with a physical deterioration and the presence of Alzheimer's. Their live-in helper (Mfoniso Udofia) has her hands full with Susan and barely tolerates the idiosyncratic Fred. The movie plays out over the course of several family visits. As the grown kids come to visit, they enact a plan to move Susan to assisted living. The challenge, however, to this scenario is Fred. Their attempts to get him to understand that he is being asked to leave his home is the dramatic center of the piece. Amidst this central story thread, there are also some less than convincing moments involving a bagel, a music therapist, and a missing cat. I know it's supposed to be a bit messy, a bit chaotic, just like life.

This obviously low budget movie has lots of good, funny and touching moments, all happening in a slice of the life of an aging couple confronted with the need to leave their long-term home. Much of the dialogue appears to be improvisation, well handled by Eliott Gould and the other old pros who make up the cast -- all excellent in their roles. Based, sort of, on the true story of the couple who actually owned the home the movie is filmed in -- and the home is, itself, a character in the movie, a period piece frozen in time.
