    I’ve got somewhat of a themed movie week going on and I’ve already run out of movies. Any suggestions for movies where an older woman, younger man relationship (generally romantic) is a significant feature? Any year, any genre.

    So far it has been:

    The Graduate (1967) Not a personal favourite but I do love Anne Bancroft in this one.

    Love and Pain and The Whole Damn Thing (1972) Highly melodramatic but has some great comedic moments. Somewhat overlooked Maggie Smith role. Nice Spain visuals as well.

    Tim (1979) Roll your eyes all you want, it fits the theme. A bargain-bin favourite.

    I haven't seen it yet, but I believe Unfaithful falls into the category. Older woman has an affair with younger man. If anything, Diane Lane's performance should impress you.

    Sunset Boulevard. Really great movie about a 50-something Hollywood has-been and her younger kept man. Nice new transfer as well.

    Private Lessons - I think there are a couple different versions of this, but I also think all of them falls under the older woman, younger man theme.

    One I forgot: The outstanding Rambling Rose with Laura Dern and Lukas Haas. Watch out, as the newer release is only MAR (Modified Aspect Ratio) at 4:3.

    Also, check out The Good Girl with Jennifer Aniston. Not that she is too much older, but it may match your theme if you stretch it.
