Junior (2010) Trailer
Trailer for the documentary Junior.
Junior is Eddie Belasco, a 75-year-old Italian American who seems to have jumped from the pages of a Scorsese script. Except he lives with his 98 year old mother, Josephine. Luckily, their senses of humor match their levels of irritability. Together they fight and laugh in equal measures as the difficulties of aging and living in a changing neighborhood catch up with them. Eddie was always one to love the limelight, trying his hand at acting and managing topless female rock bands but now runs a non-profit theatre group for young people. In the meantime, the spotlight is squarely on Josephine with local press running to her, as she finally gets her high school diploma. Director Jenna Rosher deftly captures the bond between this odd couple and crafts a hilarious and touching portrait of growing old while staying young.
