A long-time married couple who've spent their lives together in the same New York apartment become overwhelmed by personal and real estate-related issues when they plan to move away (IMDB).

Alex (Morgan Freeman), an artist, and Ruth (Diane Keaton), a schoolteacher, have been married for 40 years. They love their spacious Brooklyn apartment that is filled with light and has a view of the Brooklyn Bridge. But more and more, they are both feeling the aches and pains of old age as they trudge up the five flights of stairs. Even their beloved dog Dorothy finds the trek difficult (Film Review, warning: clicking this link and continuing to read the review will spoil parts of this film for you.
