|A darkly hilarious satire of old age based on the novel by England's favorite curmudgeon, Kingsley Amis, Ending Up will keep you simultaneously laughing and gasping in horror. Tuppenny-Hapenny Cottage is home to a hodgepodge of oldsters forced to live together more out of financial consideration than mutual affection. In this bizarre household, each of the elderly resident's unique peeves, ailments, quirks, and charms compounds into a terrible, wonderful tragicomedy of what it means to be old in Britain. The residents are divided in most things; some, for example, dote on the resident dog, others loathe it. The strange entourage is made up of vivid, well-acted characters including a man struggling with his vocabulary after a stroke, a woman concerned about her increasing senility, and a practical joker who often goes too far. Some of the comedy is so dark it's painful to watch, but the cast does an alluring job. This is a refreshing look at old age without the kid gloves and an unsanctimonious sense of sarcasm. --Tara Chace|
