Drama - Fans of Morgan Freeman and Diane Keaton will enjoy this gentle
aimed at older adults. There is some language, but the film is
fairly clean though it would not be of interest to children.
Roger EbertFull Review Average '5 Flights Up' mines the reliable charms of its veteran stars as much as it possibly can.
NY PostFull Review Good Morgan Freeman and Diane Keaton have unexpectedly great chemistry in this warm and funny comedy...
Rex ReedFull Review Good ...the humorous script, fluidly directed by Richard Loncraine, makes this an agreeable experience. It's good to see first-rate artists devoted to a film that doesn't pander to an unsophisticated audience with a thirst for violence and smut.
