Jewish Senior Film Buffs presents


With Peter Falk


Peter Falk plays Morris Applebaum, a celebrated New York thespian who is now ninety years old and has decided to "check out" on life.  He sends a letter to each of his three grown-up children for a final reunion.  The kids rush to New York to figure out what is going on and stop Morris from going through with his plan.  This may sound dramatic but do not forget these kids were raised in the theatre, are Jewish and so full of angst, and of course all have issues of their own.


Checking Out won for best picture and best screenplay at the Phoenix Film Festival, for best director and best actress at the Palm Beach Film Festival, and was winner for best comedy film at the Worldfest in Houston.
