Young At Heart is a smartly cast, expertly acted ensemble film, but it unmistakably belongs to Sinatra.

Audience Reviews for Young at Heart

Adequate retelling of Four Daughters but the original is superior in all departments.

Frank Sinatra can really act?! There's more to Doris Day than her singing?! Gig Young is severely underrated in Hollywood? Course I knew all this before, but it's nice to have it confirmed... A delightful, bittersweet and glorious film about family, love and the tensions that arise from it all. Gorgeous.
