Intergenerational Movies

Just watching an older movie again like Back to the Future you will remember how much fun it was and so very intergenerational. Or you may be watching it for the first time.

There are so many movies with intergenerational themes. Watching these films will show how generations can connect and share common values, cumulative knowledge, experience, and culture essential to human development. In the face of global aging, changing family structures, family separations, economic insecurity, and political trends pitting young and old against each other, intergenerational solidarity is now, more than ever, a pressing need. As such these films may serve to bring generations together and can stimulate intellectual and emotional connections between generations by representing intergenerational solidarity.

There are lots of excellent movies about family relationships but movies about unrelated people who create their own families are more unusual.
