It's fortunate that this latest pairing of two iconic movie stars is worthy of their talent, their long-standing appeal, and the startling vibrancy with which they carry on the movie star tradition. It's a lovely story, entirely fresh in some ways, comfortably familiar in others. The naturalness and the chemistry between such old friends, Fonda and Redford, serve Addie and Louis well. They've always been fun to watch together and they still are. Directing, supporting performances, and screen adaptation of a fine book are all first-rate, as is the production. And Colorado looks sensational by day and by night. Only the slightly corny coffee klatch of old-timers, led by Bruce Dern, feels routine; it's not even clear why Louis Waters would want to hang out with these codgers. Our Souls at Night is a solid movie, well worth watching simply for the pleasure of the company and a heartwarming look at an ageless romance.
