The Wednesdays

This offering from Irish filmmaker Conor Ferguson is a charming and thought provoking story of old age, the yen for a return to youth, and simply life itself. Mr. and Mrs. O'Leary are an elderly couple whose lives have become steeped in a routine that they find satisfying, for the most part, as they have something to do every day of the week... except on Wednesdays. Into their lives comes an unexpected "ditch" from one of their neighbors that changes their outlooks on every level. The Wednesdays is a first rate short that will make you feel good from any perspective you choose to enjoy it.
