Movie Preview: The Way We Get By

Warning: If you're something of a sap, as I am, the trailer for this documentary The Way We Get By will make you cry a little. Or a lot. I've already mentioned (a few times) that I get misty at pretty much anything having to do with older folks — especially documentaries, and especially when there are poignant scenes of these older folks welcoming home soldiers returning from the Iraq War. The movie's website describes the movie like this:

Beginning as a seemingly idiosyncratic story about troop greeters (a group of senior citizens who gather daily at a small airport to thank American soldiers departing and returning from Iraq) the film quickly turns into a moving, unsettling and compassionate story about aging, loneliness, war and mortality.

So, you know, the light stuff. Critics seem to love this movie, and from the trailer I think I can see why. There appears to be a New York premiere, but I'm not sure where else the film will open theatrically. Surely it will be on DVD before too long. To check out the trailer,
