Movie Info

Katherine Mitchell (Linda Thorson), a widowed yet vibrant senior, wasn't looking for love a second time - not at her age, and certainly not with grumpy Isaac Shapiro (Stuart Margolin). Despite the nosey bunch of seniors in the residence where Katherine convalesces after breaking her hip, she and Isaac warm to each other over their shared love of music. Against unforeseen obstacles, their love blooms and together they set out to fulfill Katherine's lifelong dream of going to the opera in Milan.


Critic Reviews for The Second Time Around

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Sinatra sang that it's more comfortable the second time you fall, Dean Martin sang "that's amore," and Yogi Berra said that it's not over until it's over. Those who get those references are bound to get this film.

A film that's pleasant enough but never achieves the level of emotional resonance that Marr was aiming for.

Take heart, Golden Agers, there is a little gem of a film now playing that should resonate with you as well as all in search of a tender though quirky love story.

If you need a break from aliens, superheroes and explosions, you could do worse.

This story about Katherine and Isaac, two elders who fall in love at a retirement home, could have sunk into saccharine depths, but its authentic take on aging keeps it from making your teeth ache.

It's a pleasant vehicle for Rockford Files veteran Margolin, who's good when his shtick settles in, and especially for Thorson, who still has a nice supply of the screen zip she showed when, daringly enough, she replaced Diana Rigg in The Avengers.
