They are magical reindeer at parties, pink fluffy unicorns at Air Force reunions, and zombies at retirement homes. They perform at animal-rescue benefits, church fundraisers, or a shrimp parade. They are the Calendar Girls, Florida’s most dedicated dance team for women over 60, and they have plenty to give—impressive makeup, handmade costumes, elaborate routines, unparalleled enthusiasm, and sparkling personalities. These hardworking senior volunteer dancers are determined to prove that age is just a number. Through a series of intimate portraits seamlessly interwoven with choreographed dance scenes, this surefire crowd pleaser is a fun and loving look at these incredible women in all their glory. A joyous reminder of the importance of having a tribe, Calendar Girls is an inspiring coming-of-golden-age film that will shake up the outdated image of “the little old lady,” and a call for everyone to dance their hearts out while they still can.
