En español | The King's Speech and Secretariat are among AARP The Magazine's Top 10 Movies for Grownups this year. The rest, in no particular order, are Get Low, RED, Letters to Juliet, The Company Men, The Kids Are All Right, Another Year, City Island and Casino Jack.
"The films featured on our Top 10 list provide a daring group of must-see performances for the grownup audience,” said Meg Grant, West Coast editor of AARP The Magazine. “From drama and period-pieces, to family comedies and romance, 50-plus actors and filmmakers have provided true entertainment this past year.”
“Our readers rely on us to cut out the kid stuff and put dynamic, character-driven films in their queues,” said Bill Newcott, the magazine’s entertainment editor and host of AARP’s weekly Movies for Grownups® radio show.
AARP The Magazine will spotlight and celebrate movies with relevance to the 50-and-over audience at its annual Movies For Grownups® Awards in early February. The year-end Top 10 list previews the annual awards, which include 16 categories — among them Best Grownup Love Story, Best Buddy Picture and Best Movie. The entire list of awards will be featured in the March/April issue of AARP The Magazine, available in late January 2011.
